The best way to think about The Climate Mobilization is not as an organization but rather as a project, or perhaps a mission.
Our mission is to protect civilization and the natural world. We are “all in for all life.”
Our project is building and supporting a social movement that causes the US federal government to commence WWII-scale climate mobilization as soon as possible.
So rather than “members” we have Mobilizers — people who are dedicating themselves daily — to making mobilization a reality. Indeed, The Climate Mobilization is powered almost exclusively by volunteers, many of them full time!
The Climate Mobilization was founded and is directed by Margaret Klein Salamon. She makes decisions about strategy, branding, resource distribution and other operations by consulting advisors and teammates — especially those who have helped The Climate Mobilization grow in power and capacity.
The decision-making criteria is always the same: “What will best build power behind climate truth: the fact that we need a WWII-scale climate mobilization?” In other words, “How can we, as a group of dedicated mobilizers, most effectively use our time and energies in this grave hour?” This includes taking on many different kinds of projects, from producing papers like The Victory Plan and Leading the Public into Emergency Mode, grassroots organizing for the Pledge to Mobilize, and doing outreach to leaders in all sectors.
Margaret delegates large amounts of responsibility to leaders in the organization, including Ezra Silk, Nicole Harris and Ashik Siddique. Local chapter leaders and organizers also have autonomy to spread the mobilization message in a way that works for them.
