The
Climate Activist's
Roadmap

Now more than ever, it’s important that we all be climate activists - doing everything we possibly can that will force positive change. You’ve made the first step by coming here, now let us show you the rest of the way.

Find Your Biggest Lever

Becoming an activist is about finding your biggest lever for change. What’s yours?

Think about it:

  • Do you own a business?
  • Do you work at a company that could change its practices?
  • Do you have a large social media following?
  • Are you a writer? Scientist? Both?

We all have a lever, we just need to use it.

Get Political

A. Thank your members of Congress.

Thank your members of congress for being progressive on climate.

Make a Call

C. Do the same for your governor.
