Friday Green New Deal Rallies at Rep. Peters!
Aug 2 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

We’ve asked Rep. Scott Peters to show us he’s a climate leader by taking three simple steps: 1) cosponsor the Green New Deal; 2) sign the No Fossil Fuel Money pledge; 3) host a town hall meeting on climate change. 

Although Representatives Levin, Vargas and Davis have cosponsored the Green New Deal, Rep. Peters has yet to take action. 

So, as part of the Raise the Alarm Campaign, SanDiego350 is leading rallies outside his office every single Friday, until he does. 

We will continue to Raise the Alarm until the Green New Deal is adopted. There is strength in numbers! Join us, make your voice heard, and help us spread the word.

Fundraising team meeting
Aug 18 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Join SanDiego350's new Fundraising Team and help us raise money. We'll talk about what we're already doing, how we can improve our efforts, and develop some next steps. 

We need help with a wide range of fun and rewarding activities, so no matter your skills or interests, there’s a role for you in the Fundraising Team. And never fear – while the goal of the Fundraising Team is to raise money, there are plenty of roles that don't involve asking for money. These include planning parties, researching and applying for grants, talking to people about why you love SD350, social media, thanking donors for contributions, and developing creative materials. Read more

Fundraising allows SD350 to achieve our mission of building a grassroots climate movement. We use these funds to pay our wonderful staff, buy art supplies, support volunteer and youth leadership, and organize marches and rallies. We need more donors and support to continue growing. 

If you're interested but you can't make it to this meeting, please email Masada.

Addressing the Climate Crisis Through Meditation and Action
Sep 9 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Please join us for a night of meditation and community to find ways to address the climate emergency. It's natural to feel much insecurity about our planet's future when we see increasing evidence of the climate crisis. 
 

Do we wonder if individuals and communities working from this day forward have the power needed to enact significant change? And can mindful awareness empower us to find a place of refuge, nourishment and inner wisdom?

Through small group discussion and short meditations, we will explore our moral authority and power. Please join us. No meditation experience required.

RSVP Here!

This program is provided by the Social and Climate Justice Groups of InsightSD, The First Unitarian Universalist Church and SanDiego350.

Global Climate Walkout – San Diego!
Sep 20 @ 9:00 am – 6:00 pm

RSVP now to support youth and join the Global Climate Walkout on Friday, September 20, 2019.

Millions of youth across 150 countries have been leading #FridaysforFuture school walkouts to demand a sustainable, livable future for their generation. Now, youth are calling on the rest of us to stand with them in a worldwide climate strike

On Friday, September 20th, students will walk out of their schools and adults will walk out of their workplaces to demand a bold response to the climate crisis and kick off a global week of action. 

We must ALL stand together in a massive show of resistance to move our political leaders to treat the climate crisis with the seriousness it deserves – as an urgent crisis that needs our attention NOW. 

Mark your calendar. Save the date. Pledge to join us at one of multiple walkout locations at universities, schools and businesses in San Diego. Spread the word. On September 20 we will wake up San Diego and shake up the world.

“Adults keep saying we owe it to the young people, to give them hope, but I don’t want your hope. I don’t want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic. I want you to feel the fear I feel every day. I want you to act. I want you to act as if the house is on fire, because it is.” – Greta Thunberg

Join and share our Facebook event with your friends. 

Make this action a success! After RSVPing:

  • Make a donation to support climate walkouts in San Diego
  • If your organization would like to be part of the coalition organizing and supporting this mobilization, please contact us.

We will soon have a coalition website for this day of action. We'll send the info to everyone who RSVPs as soon as its available.
