Sonia Demiray, Communications Strategist: “As we race by our goal of halting Climate Change at 1.5C/2.7F,  corporations and elected officials still focus on maximizing profits instead of looking out for the people and the planet. We, the general public, must take the lead to bring on immediate change, resiliency, and climate justice. We, the Climate Communications Coalition, move people to action through information, public education, and by providing the tools to provoke grassroots change. We use consistent, coherent, data and science driven communications, support our environmental and climate justice partners, and call our those who gaslight the public.” soniademiray@climatecc.org

Katey Grogan, Contracting Specialist: “We are reaching the point where climate change may become irreversible. The time to act is now. Communication is a critical step in giving future generations access to a sustainable future.” kateygrogan@climatecc.org

Kathleen Rall, Climate Activist: “As a mother and grandmother I want most to save a livable environment for future generations.  I believe this is what most citizens and leaders want, but the climate crisis is not broadcast loud enough or often enough to move governments and everyone else.  We must speak together, build our strength, move mountains, embrace big changes.” 

David Demiray, Attorney and In-House Counsel
