The RE-AMP Network

Think Systemically,  Act Collaboratively

The mission of the RE-AMP Network is to set collective strategy and enable collaboration on climate solutions in the Midwest. Our North Star Goal is to equitably eliminate greenhouse gas emissions in the Midwest by 2050.

While some member organizations focus on policy advocacy, others work in frontline communities or focus on building the political will necessary for climate action. Over 130 groups including the Minneapolis Foundation,  Union of Concerned Scientists, Joyce Foundation, Ohio Citizen Action, Black Environmental Leaders Association, Climate Generation, Ecology Center, 1000 Friends of Wisconsin, Sierra Club, Center for Rural Affairs, and many others bring a diversity of perspectives that not only position the Network to build a broader and more effective climate movement in the Midwest, but also amplify Network members’ collective power and ability to achieve results. By thinking systemically and acting collaboratively as peers, funders and advocates within the RE-AMP Network have been working diligently over the last decade toward our shared goal.
