Today, 350.org announced Tamara Toles O’Laughlin as the organization’s new North America Director. Toles O’Laughlin will drive the team’s strategic vision to build a just and equitable world by supporting the development of generative strategy to stop the fossil fuel industry from continuing to accelerate the climate crisis. Under her leadership, the North America team will focus on strengthening an emerging multiracial movement to confront and isolate fossil fuel billionaires, and open up the political dialogue for transformative climate action.
Tamra shared, “I am excited to join 350 as apart of the next phase of its commitment to equity and inclusion that betters the responsiveness and depth of our shared work on climate resilience. I look forward to steering the implementation of program and partnership ready justice and equity plans, already in place, and continuing the organizational conversation about how we show up to build a multiracial movement that meets the urgency of our time.”
