WHO WE ARE

WHO WE ARE

We are humans! Just like you. Weird, silly, complete and beautiful messes.

And we are called to befriend and support young people as we collectively step into our authentic voice and power to disrupt the status quo and push local leaders to do what is necessary to end the climate crisis and transition to a just, sustainable society.

NBD, just another group of humans trying to save the world.

iMatter has been a lot of things over the years. Alec Loorz started the organization Kids vs. Global Warming with his mom, Victoria Loorz in 2007, when he was 13 years old. The organization, which eventually became iMatter, grew up with Alec and his peers, from community awareness projects to speaking engagements to federal lawsuits to worldwide marches.

Throughout the journey, in every project and campaign, iMatter has always been true intergenerational collaboration, with young people driving the vision and the ideas and adults supporting.

And that’s what’s at our core today: a group of amazing humans who all embrace and support young people in our authentic power to transform the world.

Alec is now a Spiritual Ecology fellow, working on a feature documentary, telling his deeply personal story of burnout and despair and exploring what real ecological interconnection and regeneration looks like. Victoria is back to her roots as pastor of the Ojai Church of the Wild, organizing the emerging Wild Church Network and and helping to create the Common Ground Network. And both are still involved on the iMatter advisory board.
