New activists like YOU are the lifeblood of 350.org, a global grassroots climate justice organization. There is much to get excited about and many ways to get involved with 350 Denver during the second half of 2017, so don’t be shy – please join us!
We meet on the first Tuesday of each month at First Unitarian Society of Denver at 1400 Lafayette, Denver CO from 6:30pm – 8:00pm.
Our team is made up of people who work/volunteer with Citizens Climate Lobby, Food and Water Watch, Climate Mobilization, Transition Colorado, Climate Reality Project, Rocky Mountain Wild, Denver Green Roofs Initiative, Be the Change, Climate Action Campaign and many more.
350 Denver is focusing on working locally to urge the City of Denver to divest from JPMorgan Chase Bank. Chase funds the Dakota Access Pipeline through its complex subsidiaries, subcontractors, and partners. We are signing people up to meet with their council members and to divest or move their own money from big banks.
Because Denver is located at the seat of power we show up to protests and rallies at the offices of our legislators. We bring a presence to town halls, Public Utilities Commission hearings and Bureau of Land Management leasing auctions. We collaborate with our partners on organizing events like the People’s Climate March and the March for Science. We write letters to the editor and to our representatives. We stood on corners to urge people to vote against ballot initiative 71 and many volunteered to gather signatures for initiatives to limit fracking. We stand by and speak out for people who are experiencing firsthand the effects of environmental injustice.
There are many ways to get involved right now, as we fight to turn the tide on anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions and work toward a sustainable and just future in Denver, across Colorado and globally:
- Divestment from fossil fuel investments and projects – City & county of Denver and individuals
- Grow our volunteer base and the local climate movement
- Amplify our online presence and increase the public’s access to information
- Coalition building with other organizations
- Join and build a team in our City Council Districts
- Amplify oppositions to fracking
