More than 2,000 Connecticut residents are taking a stand for climate action on Friday.
Advocates signed a petition calling on lawmakers to protect the energy efficiency fund, which helps local residents and businesses fight climate change and high energy costs.
$54 million is set to be diverted from the fund next month to help balance the state budget. A number of groups say that will come at the price of jobs and local businesses.
They will make their voices heard at the state capitol at 11 a.m. Friday.
