350 Silicon Valley Teams

Together we must take action on Climate NOW.  Please Join One of Our Teams.

 

Fossil Fuel Resistance

We need to keep 80% of all proven fossil fuel reserves in the ground.  After the successful resistance to building of the Keystone XL pipeline, we now organize to fight the import of tar sands bitumen to Bay Area refineries.  We work to build support for regional, state, and federal policies focused on reducing greenhouse gas emissions from transportation fuels in the Bay Area, California and nationwide.   Fossil Fuel Resistance

 

Divestment

It's wrong to profit from wrecking the climate.  We believe that educational and religious institutions, city and state governments, and other institutions that serve the public good should divest from fossil fuels.  Join our local Divestment Team and learn how to take action.  

An easy first step is to sign our petitions!    Divestment

 

Partnerships

We need to build bigger, stronger and more effective partnerships.  With 350 Silicon Valley as the catalyst, we plan to form one-to-one partnerships and then wider alliances with leading environmental and climate action organizations. And leveraging that climate action core, we'll also partner with groups of climate activists within the larger circle of religious, healthcare, educational, social justice, and organized labor organizations.    Partnerships

 

Communications & Outreach

Communications and outreach are at the heart of every action that 350 Silicon Valley takes.  That means that we have a great deal of vital information to share and many people to reach with our messages.  Help generate enthusiasm about 350 Silicon Valley’s mission and support the organization goals with communications that build a highly energized activist community.  And in the process use your talents to make a difference.

We need to build grassroots support for climate action!  In order to address climate change we must have local, state and national policy.  Join the Outreach team to work to build our local climate movement.  Join us, spread the word and make a difference!    Communications and Outreach

 

Letter-Writing

"Let's hype the hope!" with a flood of letters to politicians and the media. The technology for a carbon-free world is ready and the economics are favorable. We just need to get over the hump of political resistance. A big noise from the constituency is the push that is needed. Letter writing is an effective, easy and fun way to do that.    Letter-Writing

 

  

Legislative Team

"California is leading the way for the rest of the country. Silicon Valley area legislators will play a key role in the coming months, and with our new allies in the CA State Assembly and Senate, there is much we can accomplish. The Republicans want to see us fail, but we need to demonstrate that you can have an economy that is both strong AND green. The earlier passage of AB 32, the California Global Warming Solutions Act, provides the tools for a sharp reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.  Now, it is up to each of us to make it happen!".   Legislative Team
