The struggle is real, but we can solve it together.

We've designed community around
doing good and feeling good.

do your intrusive thoughts sound like this?
"I want to do my part but I don't even know where to start."

We've created a curated resources for you based on what you're interested in. When you participate in our community onboarding and learn more about your Action Archetype, you'll get a sense of where YOU fit into building the world you want to live in.

"Do my actions even make a difference?"

When you surround yourself with a brilliant community of like-minded changemakers, you can see for yourself that your actions matter. We'll also help you find local actions you can take that are more tangible and accessible for you.

"How do I talk about it without coming off as judgmental?"

EVERYONE who comes to the Soapbox Project community struggles with climate conversations. That's why we've dedicated specific events and Action Hours to practicing these conversations in a protected space so you know how to navigate them in your own life.

We are ordinary humans doing extraordinary things

Eliminated up to *1 million* new parking spaces

Joseph and his neighbors worked together to remove parking minimums for their town (each eliminated space saves ~$50,000 and can then be used for transit and other public services!!). Sharing his progress inspired another member, Zoe, to figure out how to build a pedestrian bridge in her car-centric neighborhood.

Hosted a plant-based protein cooking lesson

Karen hosted an in-person gathering that rivals the best cooking classes in the world. Seattle Soapbox friends learned to make seitan, soy milk, tempeh, and tofu. The night was filled with recipe handouts, culinary tips, and laughs all around (especially when we messed up). Later in the year, Karen invited us to a food justice dinner to deepen our activism!

Found space to explore, try, fail, and try again

Moji has already been doing incredible work through her zero-waste consulting company... and with Soapbox Project, she found a different, more expansive kind of climate activism space.


We've got you every step of the way.

We've got a well-organized, resource-packed online community space that helps you learn, connect, and take action. Here are a few of our favorite activities and offerings:

Weekly events guided by an expert facilitator (hi)
Leadership pathways to get more engaged in the social justice space, like bringing Soapbox Project to your company or writing an opinion piece
Non-icky networking sessions to connect deeply with folks working on climate solutions in their personal and professional lives
Live fireside chats with authors, entrepreneurs, artists, organizers, researchers, and more to spark your curiosity
Small-group Rage Rooms to share and process our anxiety, grief, and anger around the climate crisis (and, y'know, the feeling of existential dread that comes with societal collapse)
A member directory that helps you connect 1x1 with people to find momentum, accountability, co-conspirators, or listening ears
Joy Jam discussions every month to remind each other to celebrate our wins and share our progress
In person gatherings in Seattle, New York, Bay Area, DC Metro, Phoenix... plus wherever you might want to help us expand!

We operate on a choose-what-you-pay structure which you can find at the top of the sign up form below!

Click through to get your questions answered. There's a place on our sign-up form to ask more Q's!

How much does Soapbox Project membership cost?
Arrow (clickable)

Our membership is $449 for the year. We also have a monthly payment plan, which is the cost of only one nice dinner a month. Also, if you work for a company, your employer will likely cover this sort of thing - check your learning & development budget or ask your manager!

How do I register?
Arrow (clickable)

All you have to do is sign up via our application form! There's an option to chat with one of our team members if you have questions that aren't answered here.

What happens after my first year as a member?
Arrow (clickable)

You can choose to renew your membership annually, and we hope you do. The best part of joining a community like this is that YOU get to have a say in shaping the future of Soapbox. We're still figuring out what Year 2, 3, and beyond look like, but for now, members who have been with us for a while get to be mentors, find press opportunities to share their climate work, get selected to speak at conferences, and more. After Year 1, we'll transition from you finding your way to becoming a true climate leader.

What experience do I need to participate?
Arrow (clickable)

Formally - NONE!! The ONLY pre-requisite for our community is that you have an earnest desire to change yourself and engage in this topic with honesty and accountability*. If you commit to approaching with curiosity, prioritizing good impacts vs. good intentions, and focusing disagreements on systems vs. individual humans, this is for you.

Thanks Michelle Kim for these words.

What if I want to participate but I can't afford it?
Arrow (clickable)

If you don't have an employer or company budget that you can invest, we are committed to finding you options. In the registration form, we'll ask you if you require a needs-based sponsorship from Soapbox Project.
