The petition below was started by Linda Inness, a CREDO activist in Philadelphia, Tennessee. Linda started a petition on CREDO Mobilize, where activists can launch their own campaigns for progressive change. Will you help Linda pressure the state legislature to pass a renewable electricity standard in Tennessee by signing the petition and sharing it with your friends and family?

CREDO Mobilize
Tell the Tennessee legislature: Support clean energy now.

Dear Charles,

Across the country, 30 states and the District of Columbia have renewable electricity standards in place that require a certain percentage of all electricity to be generated from clean and renewable sources of energy – but Tennessee isn’t one of them.

Tennessee has the potential to be a leader in wind energy but it is falling behind due to the state’s outdated, pro-pollution energy policies. It is long past time for that to change.

That's why CREDO activist Linda Inness started a campaign on, which allows activists to start their own petitions. The petition, which is to the Tennessee legislature, asks the following:

Investing in clean energy helps fight climate change, reduces death and disease from air pollution and creates good, local jobs. I urge you to support legislation to create a renewable electricity standard in Tennessee.

Sign the petition: Tell the Tennessee legislature to pass a renewable electricity standard.

Since the first renewable electricity standard was put in place, in Iowa in 1983, states across the country have used this policy to slash deadly air pollution, reduce carbon pollution and create good, local jobs.

With climate change here now and fueling extreme weather across the country, Tennessee can’t continue relying on dirty fossil fuels. It’s time for Tennessee's state Legislature to start taking climate change seriously and pass a renewable electricity standard that requires utilities to invest in clean sources of energy.

Will you join Linda and urge the Tennessee legislature to pass a renewable electricity standard now by signing the petition?

Thank you for your support.
