PCM is both confident in and proud of, the state and local level climate movement. Our partners on the ground have demonstrated a palpable eagerness to transform the ‘moment energy’ surrounding mass mobilizations into sustainable, long-term ‘movement action’.
Accordingly, the State Collaboration Movement-Building Work will help build broad-based collaborations around climate, jobs, and justice; strengthen relationships across sectors, perhaps most importantly between environmental organizations and labor; and build power and infrastructure to keep the movement alive and strong. PCM has developed criteria to determine which states make sense for engagement. Currently, we are assessing FL, CO, IL, MI, and MN – all states where PCM partners have expressed an interest in building out local “PCM” tables, there is a history of PCM mobilizations, and/or there is an opportunity to engage in proactive climate, jobs, and justice policy.
Below are the current State Collaborations.
