The only time we collect personal information, or information that can identify you, is when you voluntarily provide that information, such as when you sign up for updates or register to participate in projects or campaigns. This information includes your name, email address, phone number, address, zip code, and credit card information. We will use the information you provided for the purpose you provided it, and we will add you to our mailing list.

As part of our mailing list, you will receive updates on other CMP campaigns or activities. You will also receive information about campaigns or activities of local affiliates, including The Climate Mobilization (“TCM,” our affiliated 501(c)(4)), or other trusted CMP allies in some instances —such as if our allies are organizing events that further CMP’s mission in your local area. To improve your engagement with our network, we track whether users open the emails we send and click the links within those emails. You can opt-out of these communications at any time using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of each email we send.
