Our future is rapidly and silently being destroyed by the climate crisis. iMatter exists so youth can band together, speak up, and ignite a movement to change society’s path NOW, before it is too late. As the generation that will be most impacted by the climate crisis, we have the moral authority and the ability to stop it in our lifetimes. In order to end the climate crisis, we need your support. We are launching the pilot iMatterNow campaign, and we need your financial support. iMatterNow will enable the youth of these cities, listed here, to demand action from their city council members. We will use a report card that grades the city or county based on the following: list the official sections of the report card. At iMatter, we believe that youth, can and should stand up and lead this movement to stop the climate crisis because it is our generation that will be the most impacted in years to come. Although we cannot vote, we still can help end the climate crisis by holding our communities accountable to the lifestyle they lead, so that they can be conscious of their choices and make impactful changes that will lead to a sustainable future. Since Congress has yet to pass any laws that will stop the climate crisis and protect our future, we are taking matters into our own hands.
We can make local change. Mayors cannot ignore their own constituents who are not only presenting real facts and concerns, but also attainable solutions.
