Thank you for your interest in joining Tacoma’s next generation of climate justice leaders in this first-ever cohort! 
Inspired by community input and the 2030 Tacoma Climate Action Plan (CAP), cohort members will engage with community organizations, City staff, and elected officials, and take climate action! Made up of frontline community members (see question 6 on the next page), the cohort will learn about local climate change impacts, emissions sources, and solutions through a social justice lens, as well as civic engagement strategies and tools to navigate local public decision-making processes. Tacoma's Climate Action Plan guides action for healthy, affordable housing; clean, reliable transportation; protections for public health; and green, good­ paying jobs. The Tacoma Climate Leadership Cohort is an extension of the CAP and is meant to foster relationships, support individual development, and connect community issues, services, and efforts.  
Selected cohort members are offered a stipend up to $595. See participation requirements, expectations, and qualifications as well as answers to frequently asked questions:
