El Cajon Every Day is Earth Day!
May 28 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

SD350 will be supporting East County BIPOC as they host an impactful event and advocate for an evironmental justice community. 

Join us Saturday, May 28th from 11am-2pm at Hillside Rc Center in El Cajon for an educational and interactive Earth Day Fair. We chose to host events in this neighborhood, because it is near a census tract with more pollution that 93% of California! So please join us as we provide meaningful resources and fight to increase the urban forest in these areas to help improve air quality.

This will truly be a day to remember, as we build a sense of community in East County and rally around the issues that matter!

Activities:

  • Succulent Potting
  • Pot Painting
  • Recyclable Crafts
  • Vegan BBQ
  • Garden to Table Classes
  • Music
  • And SO Much More!

 

Our Goals:

  • Increase urban tree canopy
  • Shut down the air-polluting Peak Power Plant in El Cajon
  • Empower the community through education
  • Encourage more sustainable habits by providing eco-friendly resources
  • Advocate for Community Choice Energy

Stop Sempra from Fracking Our Future and Polluting Our Communities!
Jun 8 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Join SanDiego350 outside Sempra's Headquarters, Wednesday, June 8th at 12pm, as we protest SDG&E for charging San Diegans the highest rates in the ENTIRE Nation and polluting our communities! 

Sempra, SDG&E's parent company, is making record profits by ripping off San Diego ratepayers, while trying to kill rooftop solar and also exploiting the tragedy of the Ukraine war to expand their fracked methane gas empire which will make it impossible for us to transition to a clean, green future. 

Meanwhile, 1 in 4 San Diegans cannot afford their utility bills and their CEO is raking in $25 Million/year.

WHAT: In-person protest / rally with creative arts and visuals.

  • Community Advocates Speaking
  • Make and bring a sign if you can – see sign suggestions. (we'll have some there too)!

Share! Invite your friends to participate. #SempraFracksOurFuture
