About VCCA: 


Virginia Clinicians for Climate Action (VCCA) was founded in 2017 in order to bring the clinician voice to climate change advocacy in the state of Virginia.  


Clinicians have the knowledge and mission to play a vital role in protecting the health and prosperity of Virginia’s families and communities from climate change. VCCA brings this critical perspective into climate-related policymaking in our state.
