Pres. Obama: #NoDAPL and Keep it in the Ground!
Oct 24 @ 7:00 am – 12:00 pm

Join us to call on President Obama (who is in San Diego a fundraiser), to use his last months in office to keep fossil fuels in the ground. He can call a stop to the Dakota Access Pipeline, prevent leasing any new federal lands for oil, gas and coal extraction, and more.

The Pres will drive by “sometime” in the morning so we’re starting at 7 am. You could probably arrive at 8 and maybe later but parking will be harder and at some point they’ll shut down roads for the Pres’ motorcade. We’ll move closer to the actual address (9706 La Jolla Farms Rd) as the time approaches.

We’ll stand on a corner near the fundraiser he is headlining to raise awareness as his motorcade goes by and hopefully get local media.

RSVP NOW

NOTE: Parking is tough up by UCSD. Our best guesses:

  • La Jolla Shores south of Azul St. (north of there is only 2-hr parking)
  • Torrey Pines Rd or La Jolla Scenic Drive south of La Jolla Village Dr (a 10+ min walk)
  • Paid parking on the UCSD campus in Parking Lot #103 (East side of Torrey Pines a couple of blocks south of the action, buy a ticket from the machine – $2 per hour)

Bring a sign! Ideas here.

Partners: California Nurses Association,  Artful Activist

“No Way On Measure A” Press Event

On October 27 the third press event of the campaign to defeat Measure A will be held. We need a crowd to show support and hold signs.

RSVP Now!

Measure A is one of the ballot measures that we will be voting on in November. It is sponsored by SANDAG, the San Diego Association of Governments. If it passes, it will increase our sales tax by half a cent for 40 years to pay for a grab bag of different projects that won’t address climate change and won’t move us to a 21st century transportation system that prioritizes transit. The measure is opposed by both the Democratic and Republican parties, all the climate groups in San Diego, as well as unions, health advocates, etc.

SD350 is part of the Quality of Life Coalition that is opposed to the ballot measure and is working to defeat it. We hope that you will join us in voting against it and help us get the word out to others.

Join SanDiego350 and our allies in a public health related press conference with the California Nurses Association.

One to One Training
Nov 10 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Meeting with a new or potential member can be one of the best ways to share why we are passionate about addressing climate change and to highlight how new members can get involved in the important and impactful work that we are doing at SanDiego350. The one to one training is an opportunity for established SanDiego350 members to learn how they can hold an effective one to one meeting with new members that are interested in joining SanDiego350 or with members that want to become more involved.

The one to one training will highlight the following topics:

  • Discuss the purpose and goals of a one to one
  • Outline the process of preparing for and running a one to one meeting
  • Give updates on and review the SanDiego350 teams, current projects and volunteer opportunities
  • Provide information on current volunteer opportunities

This will be a fun event that will give you the opportunity to connect with longstanding members of SanDiego350 and will  be a refresher on all the great work that we are doing.  As someone that inspires members by sharing your passion in a one to one meeting you will play an integral role in SanDiego350’s continued growth and influence.

Please RSVP now!

Thank you for your support on this important project!

As part of the environmental/climate justice components we are focusing on the climate, environmental justice and public health implications of local transportation choices (with Roddy Jerome, a volunteer with the Environmental Health Coalition), as well as standing in solidarity with Standing Rock to support indigenous rights and oppose the Dakota Access Pipeline (with speakers Bobby Wallace of the Barona Band of Mission Indians and the Kumeyaay Nation and Gina Tiger-Madueno of the Hunkpapa Lakota Nation, and Gerald Danforth of the Oneida Nation – leading a round dance).

This will take place around 6:30-7 pm on 11th Avenue near C Street, so if you can’t make it by 5:30 pm, plan on joining us along the route or at this specific action.
