There's strength in numbers
In 2021, more than 25,000 members of the REI community wrote to Congress urging action on climate, equity and conservation, helping to pass two historic bills.
POTUS signs the REPLANT Act
This fall—thanks to you!—Congress passed this historic bipartisan legislation to heal our national forests and harness their power to combat climate change. President Biden swiftly signed the bill into law.

The Active Transportation Infrastructure Investment Program passed as part of the bipartisan infrastructure package. This program will invest in better trails to run, bike and stroll on in communities nationwide.
