SanDiego350, an all-volunteer San Diego County organization, is concerned about climate change and its very real effects on our livelihoods, well-being, and the future for our children. We work to increase awareness of climate change and advocate for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In September 2011 we brought together hundreds of San Diego County residents, and we collectively called on our elected representatives to take immediate, strong action on climate change as part of 350.org’s international day of action on climate change.
Our organization’s values include: action-oriented; teamwork; collaboration; shared-leadership; respect for people; and peaceful demonstrations.
We’re San Diegans from different communities, of different ages, working or studying in different fields – some of us are retired – who have come together to say, “Enough is enough. Global climate change is real. We must have a clean energy future. We must start NOW.”
The SanDiego350 (SD350) Steering Committee supports the SanDiego350.org mission statement, provides continuity between monthly membership meetings, guides and supports activities of SD350, works with members to develop a dynamic vision for the organization, and tries to ensure that we are optimally engaging our greatest resource – our members. The current steering committee members are: Bob Braaton (term ends February 2015), Masada Disenhouse (term ends August 2014), Jeanne Peterson (term ends August 2014) and Emily Wier (term ends February 2015). Full steering committee policies are in the password-protected SanDiego350 internal web pages. Members may request access by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
