Building a mandate for emergency climate mobilization, starting locally:
Our City by City campaign urges local organizers to move hometown governments into climate emergency mode.
Cities have often been often the source of national progress, from minimum wage to civil rights. Local wins inspire other communities to follow and build a mandate for the much-needed national mobilization. Cities can become advocates for emergency climate mobilization, and push for state and national mobilization.
Current Strategic Priorities for Local Campaigns (organizers have chosen to focus on one, or several):
1. Passing declarations of Climate Emergency with commitments to reach zero emissions and begin carbon drawdown at emergency speed
2. Cities becoming advocates for emergency climate mobilization to the public, to other cities, and to the state and national levels.
3. Imagining and implementing mobilization policy locally
