Phase 1: City by city
Launch Fossil Free campaigns all across the country, as part of the global Fossil Free movement.
Reach thousands of new people through canvassing, partnerships and other outreach initiatives.
Create a common consciousness around our movement demands and how we will win.
Pass Fossil Free resolutions at the local level.
Ensure that our communities are with us: get local businesses, neighborhood associations, colleges & universities, healthcare professionals, faith leaders, etc. to declare their support.
Phase 2: Expand to all levels of government
Continue to launch new Fossil Free campaigns & to pass resolutions at the local level.
Begin to really raise the stakes, using nonviolent direct action and other compelling tactics in our campaigns.
Ensure that our fight for a Fossil Free world is driving headlines and newsfeeds.
Put the pressure on elected officials at the Global Climate Action Summit (September 2018) by shining a light on leaders who have committed to building a Fossil Free world, and calling out those who haven’t.
Ensure our local resolution fights are working hand-in-glove with efforts to stop new fossil fuel infrastructure so that we can help stop the industry in its tracks and protect communities on the front lines of this struggle.
Organize a massive global mobilization around the Global Climate Action Summit in California in September of 2018 to shine a light on leaders who have committed to building a Fossil Free world, and call out those who haven’t agreed to our demands.
Phase 3: Pressure politicians
Continue to expose all politicians’ stances on our demands:
– Work with those who choose to lead the pathway to a Fossil Free world with us OR
– Campaign against those who stand against the Fossil Free policies we know are necessary.
Continue to pass resolutions at the local level, ensuring the fight moves beyond city limits to statehouses and governor’s mansions across the country.
Continue to grow our movement by the tens of thousands, secure headlines, and raise the stakes using compelling tactics.
Rise with our progressive allies to ensure a fast and just transition to 100% renewable for all and no new fossil fuel projects are a part of the 2020 Presidential Platform.
Phase 4: Bold federal action
Fights will continue locally; we know that building the power to win on the local level will secure lasting change for our communities.
As we reach for the 2020 presidential election, we will ensure that in order to win, candidates must be fighting for a fast and just transition to a Fossil Free world.
We will continue to push elected officials to uphold climate leadership by investing trillions in the renewable energy system we need and creating millions of jobs in the process.
