Ramos Report: Latest News From Team Odette
Climate Change Action

Today students from across Baltimore are striking again to protest our inaction on climate change. Climate change is already having a major impact in Baltimore. Take a look at this report Code Red: Baltimore's Climate Divide a project of the University of Maryland's Howard Center for Investigative Journalism, Capital News Service, and others. It is clear climate change is impacting Baltimore's neighborhoods.

Team Odette has put together our plans for addressing climate change in Baltimore. Here are the full policy proposals. Action needs to be taken as soon as possible to protect the air we breathe, prevent flooding, avert rising temperatures, avoid environmental devastation. Our policy proposals include implementing Baltimore's Sustainability Plan, complete reform of our transit system, and more.

We commend the students in Baltimore and around the world for bringing urgency to this matter.
