From Climate Emergency to Climate Survival

Climate Mobilization Project is evolving our work into the next phase – building on learnings from intensive reflection on the climate justice movement this past year.

We have organized tenants and won protections for working-class folks at the frontlines of the housing crisis; sparked hundreds of transit riders to participate in a victorious campaign that won millions of dollars for fare free transit for all; and facilitated intensive coaching for 43 community organizing member groups that transformed Network groups’ impacts in their communities.

Our Vision

We are incubating local movements rooted in healing, community care, and climate survival mutual aid that asserts our needs in the face of climate disaster. Together, we will carry out creative direct action that highlights governmental abandonment, builds international solidarity, and pulls inspiring tactics from campaigns across the globe.

Building a movement of movements to build consolidated power to take on the fossil fuel industry

Build organizers’ resilience in the the face of accelerating climate disasters

Using climate collapse and governmental abandonment as opportunities for the need to emerge in communities of healing, community care, and power

Nurturing the radical imagination of our movements through visionary incubation gatherings 

Our Pilot Programming for 2023

Create community safety from climate disasters through grassroots climate survival mutual aid programs

Ground in a lineage of visionary global movement history, struggles, tactics, and strategies 

Launch coordinated and strategic direct action campaigns to take on the fossil fuel industry

About Us

Climate Mobilization Project is a 501(c)3 non-profit founded in 2015 working collaboratively with The Climate Mobilization to grow the movement for a just, emergency-speed mobilization to save our planet. No one is stepping up to make the urgent changes required to save us. All of us must take this on. We have to take back our future.

Over the past seven years since our founding, Climate Mobilization Project has achieved a paradigm shift in climate politics. Moving society away from thinking about “climate change” to instead responding to the “climate emergency” — which requires immediate attention to survive — has resulted in more than 1 in 10 people on the planet living in a city, state or other jurisdiction that has declared a climate emergency. 

Our Team

We are a small team, supported by highly dedicated volunteers. Our passionate staff has diverse expertise in movement building, policy campaigns, and communications. We rely on deep collaboration with our partners across the climate and environmental movement.
