Mission

Climate Parents is a diverse national movement of parents, grandparents and families mobilizing for clean energy and climate solutions. We work to influence public policy makers and energy providers to take bold steps to protect kids and communities from the health and climate impacts of burning fossil fuels---and to move toward 100% clean energy. Motivated by love for our kids, we’re striving to harness the moral and political force of millions of families for the healthy, equitable and just world all children deserve.

Climate Parents co-founder Lisa Hoyos and her boys

Lisa Hoyos

Lisa Hoyos is the Director of Climate Parents. She has been a campaigner in the labor and environmental movements for over twenty years, having worked with such organizations as the BlueGreen Alliance (a clean energy jobs advocacy organization), the AFL-CIO and Greenpeace. She also worked as a staffer to the California Senate Natural Resources Committee. Lisa co-founded Climate Parents in 2012 out of concern for how climate change is already impacting the health and safety of our kids and communities, and a strong belief that parents, grandparents and families are motivated to mobilize for clean energy solutions. In addition to directing Climate Parents, Lisa is a member of the San Francisco Commission on the Environment, and serves on the boards of the California League of Conservation Voters, Save the Bay and the Labor Network for Sustainability. She is Latina and bilingual, and is committed to building a diverse movement of families engaged in climate and clean energy advocacy. She lives with her husband and two school age boys in San Francisco.
