A message from Executive Director,
Margaret Klein Salamon, climate psychologist
The Climate Mobilization is a new political organization, (founded in September 2014), powered by volunteers. Our mission is to save civilization and the natural world from catastrophic climate disruption. We are dedicated to living in climate truth, and believe that working to solve the climate crisis is everyone’s responsibility.
Dozens of leading environmental analysts have determined that the only way to save civilization from climate change is with a wartime-style mobilization, akin to the American home front effort during World War II. This stark appraisal lies at the heart of this project.
In that sense, The Climate Mobilization is a single-issue campaign. We demand a WWII-scale mobilization to restore a safe climate.
To this end, we offer all Americans the Pledge to Mobilize, a tool intended to help you intervene in collective denial and call forth the all-out emergency response needed to protect civilization and the natural world.
In 2013, I developed our basic strategic approach—the Pledge to Mobilize—with a growing network of allies. We developed the Pledge, built our website, and launched in September, 2014 at the People’s Climate March in New York City.
We work hard to enlist the considerable skills and dedication of Pledge-signers– or “Mobilizers” — in this effort. We offer recruitment materials, outreach training sessions, lively community discussion on Facebook and conference calls. We will introduce a formal public organizing campaign in coming months, as we continue to refine our social movement strategy.
