About CCAN

The mission of the Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN) is to build a diverse movement powerful enough to put our region on the path to climate stability, while using our proximity to the nation’s capital to inspire action in neighboring states, around the country, and across the world. CCAN is the largest and oldest grassroots organization dedicated exclusively to fighting for bold and just solutions to climate change in the Chesapeake region of Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC. We also know that a vibrant democracy is central to our success and we work to defend democratic integrity wherever we can.

We envision an economy where energy efficiency and truly clean sources of power sustain every aspect of our lives and dirty fossil fuels are phased out; where all communities share equitably in the promise of a clean and healthy environment; where millions of family-sustaining jobs form the backbone of our economy; and where we’ve kept the increase in the global average temperature below 1.5 degrees Celsius, protecting the most vulnerable communities in our region and the world from the worst impacts of climate change. 

As we build this movement, and work together to keep global temperatures from rising, we know that some climate impacts are already locked in. These impacts are felt most by those least responsible for them. That’s why we’re also helping the communities in our region already experiencing the terrifying impacts of climate change to adapt to a warming planet. 

Now that world governments, including our own, have begun to make commitments that match the scale of the problem, we’re making sure we do our part right here in the Chesapeake region. We’ll continue to build a people-powered movement for bold and just solutions to climate change in the Chesapeake region of Maryland, Virginia, Washington, DC, and on Capitol Hill, while also acting as “first-responders” to federal action on the climate crisis and inspiring climate action across the country.

The annual Polar Bear Plunge is CCAN's largest annual fundraising event.  Every winter, hundreds of passionate climate freeze for our climate.

On February 11th we're taking the Polar Bear Plunge to Keep Winter Cold!

We're plunging in support of the work of Potomac Riverkeeper Network and Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN).

Join the PRKN team as we jump into the icy Potomac River OR support our jump with a donation! 

Potomac Riverkeeper Network's (PRKN) mission is to protect the public’s right to clean water in the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers and their tributaries. We stop pollution to enhance the safety of our drinking water, protect healthy river habitats, and enhance public use and enjoyment.

CCAN is the largest and oldest grassroots organization dedicated exclusively to fighting for bold and just solutions to climate change in the Chesapeake region of Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC. Their mission is to build a diverse movement powerful enough to put our region on the path to climate stability, while using their proximity to the nation’s capital to inspire action in neighboring states, regions nationwide, and countries around the world. 

Just like a charity fun run, Plungers take donations from their friends and family to support CCAN’s vital climate work, in exchange for them jumping into icy cold water.

You can take the Plunge with us! Let us know if you want to join our team.
