After Donald Trump’s election, we went back to the drawing board. “How are we going to successfully commence climate mobilization under these insane political conditions?!” we asked. We devoted hundreds of hours to reading, conversation and study to attempt to answer this question.
We are now excited to share some of the conclusions we came to, in the form of our Blueprint for a Climate Emergency Movement, developed collaboratively by The Climate Mobilization and authored by Anya Grenier. We solicited feedback from a number of organizers, writers and allies working in different parts of the climate movement and other movement struggles during this process.
For those looking for an even deeper dive, we are also publishing a 40-page version that includes an extended strategic analysis.
We hope you read this blueprint, share it widely, and talk about it with others. Then, we hope you'll consider attending one of our newly launched Climate Emergency Movement trainings to learn the specifics of how to work with a local team to put it in action:
We have online trainings this week:
- Washington County, Oregon Training on Saturday, April 15, 10am-5pm PT (Be on the lookout for one in Portland soon!)
New Haven Training on Sunday, April 23, 11am-6pm ET
NYC Training on Saturday, May 6, 11am-4pm ET
If you would like to request an in person training in your area, just get an interested group of 15 people together and get in touch - we’ll do our best to send someone to you.
We are committed to providing trainings free of charge, but, inevitably, holding them is not. So we hope you’ll consider supporting this initiative with a one-time gift or by becoming a Mobilizer-Backer with a monthly donation.
Margaret, Anya and the TCM Team
