SanDiego350 is building a movement to prevent the worst impacts of climate change and climate injustice through education and outreach, public policy advocacy, and mobilizing people to take action.


What would a Just Recovery look like in San Diego?

Join SD350 for our monthly membership meeting when we’ll hear from leading environmental justice advocates about what a Just Recovery could look like and how we can help get there. With Carolina Martínez (Environmental Health Coalition), Amrah Salomón (writer, artist, educator, and activist), Rebecca Rojas (SD350) and Sonja Robinson (NAACP).

When: Tuesday, July 21st at 7 pm – on Zoom. RSVP NOW


San Diegans pay high utility rates and much of our energy still comes from fossil fuels. We can do better. The City’s electricity and gas franchise agreements are expiring. For the first time in 50-years we can get a better deal and create a more sustainable clean energy future.

Read more about the campaign, and sign and share our petition calling on the mayor and city council to get the best deal possible.


SanDiego350 leaders believe we, as advocates for climate justice, must stand for  dismantling institutional racism and white supremacy. We strive for a world where people of color have a safe and healthy future on this planet.  Read our post and resources.

Weekly Remote Actions during Pandemic

SanDiego350 is taking the coronavirus pandemic very seriously, and urges everyone to heed governmental precautionary measures. While SanDiego350 in person gatherings are cancelled, we will hold as many events and volunteering opportunities as possible online and we’re compiling a short list of effective remote actions each of us can take every week. Take action now! Also, join our Facebook support group.


 

Earth Day Virtual Climate Uprising wrap up

On Wednesday, April 22, as part of  worldwide VIRTUAL action, the Earth Day Climate Rally brought hundreds of San Diegans together – online – to demand action on climate change. The coronavirus keeps us apart, but it can’t silence our collective voice! 

Watch the full Virtual Climate Uprising (or any part) below.


 

Thanks for helping to stop SDG&E’s Unjust, Anti-climate Rate Increase!

In March, the California Public Utilities Commission rejected SDG&E’s proposal to raise the minimum electricity bill from $10 to $38 per month for all households in San Diego County. Read the UT story, with a quote from SD350 Public Policy Chair Joyce Lane. This dramatic increase would have greatly reduced the amount of solar that is installed and unfairly burdened low income residents who use little energy.  Thanks to everyone who signed the petition or took other actions to achieve this positive result.


 

Over 3,500 students walked out of more than 20 schools on Sept 20 for the Global Climate Strike!!

Accompanied by over 1,000 parents, teachers, workers and retirees. Thank you to everyone who walked out or otherwise supported the effort.

See the news coverage and photos here and watch our wrap up video:


 

COMMUNITY CHOICE ENERGY IS A GO!!!

Finally! Five city councils voted yes in September 2019 to initiate a joint Community Choice program and SanDiego350 members joined allies to support each of the votes. Community Choice will be moving forward in San Diego, La Mesa, Chula Vista, Encinitas and Imperial Beach. Thanks to everyone who signed the petition and turned out at council meetings!

There’s still work to be done after the JPA is approved to push for the CCE program to be super strong on climate, equity and labor provisions, but after over 4 years of work we’ve gotten most of what we wanted, and this is a HUGE STEP FORWARD toward a just transition to 100% clean energy.

Community Choice Energy is the key to getting the City of San Diego to 100% renewable energy by 2035.  CCE allows cities and counties to purchase power on behalf of their residents and businesses to provide renewable energy at a competitive prices while providing local control and local family sustaining clean energy jobs to our region.
