Think about other local progressive organizations that may support your efforts. Are there local chapters of Indivisible, MoveOn, NAACP, People’s Action, Center for Community Change, etc.?
Are there any local faith communities who are active on climate or other justice issues?
Are there local colleges or universities with active student climate or environmental clubs?
Secure local commitments. Secure statements of support from local organizations, faith communities, businesses, community leaders, etc. One way to do this is with a sign on letter that folks can add their names to (we like using google forms to easily capture sign-ons).
