Support for the Joint Platform offers many benefits: it lets policymakers in Sacramento and Washington D.C. know that our region is ready to tackle big challenges together. It helps to “throw your hat in the ring” as a key partner who wants to help solve how we adapt to climate change. It shows your community that you’re committed to taking action.

Thank you to the many organizations and jurisdictions that have already shown public support for Bay Adapt! Endorsements have come from all corners of the Bay Area – from east to west, north to south, regional to local government, environmental and business groups, and community-based organizations.
