Climate Mobilization Network

Weaving together local climate emergency groups into a nationwide movement

Want to organize to stop the climate emergency? We're here to help!

The Climate Mobilization Network serves our partner organizations and their constituents across the United States. We welcome organizations that are working to pass a climate emergency declaration or are using our climate emergency framework to achieve a just, all-of-society Climate Mobilization. The Network is funded by our sister organization, Climate Mobilization Project. 

*We ask member organizations to adopt an agreement with the Network to uphold CMP’s mission, vision, and values, and to pursue a local 2030 zero-emissions and just transition campaigns. The Network was designed to meet the needs of volunteer-run organizations and coalitions, but membership is open to any local climate organization aligned with a just transition and zero emissions by 2030 goal. There is no cost to join. Membership in the Network is not open to individuals.

Campaign Coaches

The Climate Mobilization Network’s campaign coaches are a core resource we provide to our 40+ member groups to guide and mentor Network groups in carrying out successful campaigns that put pressure on local targets to take climate action. Our coaches support our member groups in coalition and base–building with frontline communities, and centering racial justice in their organizing work while challenging all systems of oppression that manifest in organizing groups. 

 

Our coaches can support you in brainstorming for, planning, and implementing all areas of your campaign work while serving as mentors for your group leaders. TCM Network’s coaches have extensive backgrounds in local climate policy, climate action planning and implementation, frontline-led movement–building, and leadership development. Please reach out to mariyah@climatemobilization.org if you are interested in learning more about our coaching resource or being paired with one of our coaches, if slots are available. Note: we will prioritize youth-led and BIPOC-led climate groups with any available coaching slots.
