Banking on our future

If you have $62,500 in the mainstream banking system, your money is producing more carbon than the average American does in 6 months! We don’t want our money used to bankroll the climate crisis. Sign our Pledge and together we can get the big banks to stop financing climate destruction!

Elections 2024: Climate & Democracy are on the Ballot

In 2024, Third Act is dedicated to electing leaders who prioritize climate action and uphold democratic values at the federal, state, and local levels. We have a growing roster of activities to help us win for the planet and our democracy.

Safeguarding our Democracy

The right of all Americans to vote freely and easily—enshrined in the 1965 Voting Rights Act—is under siege. We can help pressure Washington D.C to create laws that will make it easy for everyone to play a robust role in our democracy. Take action to help us safeguard our democracy today!

Power Up Communities!

Join us in building the largest-ever coordinated nationwide initiative to influence Public Utility Commissions (PUCs) in order to strengthen clean energy policies and build a better future for our grandchildren. If you’re asking, "what are Public Utility Commissions?,” you’re in the right place!

Building community through working groups

Working Groups are volunteer-run groups organized by affinity or by geographic location. We encourage these Working Groups to engage with their colleagues and communities by executing relevant campaigns and organizing like-minded elders towards building a more sustainable future.
