About Us

DearTomorrow is inspiring people to send open letters, photos and videos about climate change to loved ones living in the future. These letters are shared with friends and family to open up a conversation about why we must act now on climate change. We are also building an archive to preserve this important moment for future generations. These messages will be released in the years 2030 and 2050.

DearTomorrow has been featured by Vox.com, TED, Public Radio International, Al Jazeera Plus, the MIT Climate CoLab, Virgin.com, BeforetheFlood.com, Yale Climate Communications, and Origin Magazine, among others.

Our Team

Jill Kubit, Co-Founder & Director

Jill is the director and co-founder of DearTomorrow. After spending a decade working with the US labor movement on climate change at Cornell University’s ILR School, Jill has become fascinated with how to best engage people on climate change. Jill is deeply committed to building new ideas, projects and organizations to explore this question and brings many organizational development skills to her work, including: fundraising, building partnerships, developing strategy, teaching, writing, organizing events, and managing projects. A mom to an energetic 3 year old, Jill was inspired to build DearTomorrow from the first moment she heard the idea. Jill’s work has recently been featured by Vox.com, TEDNYC, and Public Radio International. jill@deartomorrow.org
