iMatterNow is a network of passionate youth leaders from all across the country, organizing to hold their communities accountable for protecting their future.
Alec Loorz, co-founder of iMatter announced the launch of iMatterNow:
“We are adopting a new strategy: working with grassroots teams in schools to make significant community-level climate policy changes across the country.
These teams are supported by a robust online organizing platform. They are guided through a step-by-step campaign to push our communities to develop climate action plans that are in line with what science says is necessary to avoid climate catastrophe.
I am very excited about this approach because it focuses on concrete local solutions, and then brings these small-scale actions together as a powerful national movement.
iMatterNow teams have already begun moving through this process.”
