350 Bay Area Actionpromoting aggressive, science-based action on climate change
350 Bay Area Action has two teams. The Legislative team promotes progressive impactful action to reach ambitious climate change goals that reduce greenhouse gas emissions in a socially equitable way. The Electoral team evaluates state and local candidates for their positions on critical climate policies and issues.
Our Legislative team works on California climate justice legislation and implementation of key policies. We focus on key bills to make a big impact with our climate justice allies. We support policies that eliminate fossil fuel production and consumption and protects vulnerable communities as the state transitions to clean energy with regenerative agriculture and land use. Although the California budget deficit has been the main Legislative focus in 2020, we are fighting to fund key climate programs. Join us to make an impact on the climate justice emergency!
The Electoral team has launched the Go Green. Vote Blue. campaign to channel volunteers to critical actions to ensure we sweep the Senate, enabling federal action on climate and the environment that we desperately need. Join us!
