350.org

350.org is building the global grassroots climate movement that can hold our leaders accountable to science and justice.’    Their goals are big and simple. Stop Fossil Fuels. Build 100% Renewables.

Created by Bill McKibben and a small group of his Middlebury College students, 350 references the 350 parts per million—the safe concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.   Embracing civil disobedience as a necessary means to get results, 350.org played a leadership role in the 2019 Climate Strikes which drew in 7.6M participants on all seven continents, as well as the historic 2014 People’s Climate March, which drew more than 400,000 people to New York City. Moreover, 350.org’s innovative and successful campaign to secure commitments from major institutions to divest from fossil fuels, has resulted in nearly $8 trillion in divestment commitments from hundreds of institutions including foundations, universities, cities, and churches in the past 5 years.

We help 350.org build out their storytelling capacity and fight to stop Keystone and Line 3 pipeline in Minnesota.  We also support our local 350.org New Hampshire in their efforts to shut down the state’s last remaining coal plant.
