Team Description
Team # Team Description
  Our team is Raising the Alarm about the urgency of action on climate change using a range of tactics but with a strong focus on nonviolent direct action (NVDA).
  The Building Electrification Committee supports the efforts of the San Diego Building Electrification Coalition and works towards the decarbonization of homes and buildings through education, capacity building, and advocacy around electrifying homes and buildings. Building electrification (BE) is essential to meeting California’s ambitious climate goals, improving air quality in our homes, and protecting public health.
  The South Bay Eco Justice Team advocates for a sustainable future through public policy advocacy, climate education and legislative actions to support clean air, clean water and regenerative agriculture.
 

The Climate Action Plan (CAP) Committee advocates for municipalities throughout the San Diego region to adopt ambitious, measurable, and enforceable strategies within their Climate Action Plans.
Climate Action Plans are the key planning documents that municipalities use to guide their efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. CAPs include a broad range of policies, measures, and activities in a variety of key sectors including energy, transportation, solid waste, land use and urban design.


What you need to know about Climate Action Plans
  The Food and Soil Committee works to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by advocating for policies and individual choices that decrease the consumption of animal products, reduce food waste, and favor foods that are organic, local, in season, and/or pasture-raised. We support gardening, agricultural, and landscaping practices that draw down carbon from the atmosphere and store it in the soil.
  The legislative committee reviews proposed legislation on environmental, climate change and social/environmental justice issues, we meet with legislators and lobby for climate-forward legislation, and we engage with coalition partners to endorse climate legislation.
  The Transportation Team advocates for a fully connected, electrified regional transit system and pedestrian and bicycling infrastructure that are safe, convenient, affordable, and support GHG emission reduction goals.
 

SanDiego350’s Youth v. Oil is a youth-led campaign dedicated to collectively applying pressure on Governor Newsom to phase out fossil fuels and stop oil drilling in California.

 

OUR GOALS

  • Get school districts, city councils and other entities across California to pass resolutions calling on the Governor to phase out fossil fuel extraction in California. 
  • Stand in solidarity with the frontline communities most impacted by oil drilling. 
  • Educate San Diegans about oil extraction in order to create an intergenerational movement against the fossil fuel industry to mitigate the climate crisis.

WHY OPPOSE OIL DRILLING?

Oil drilling, especially its most dangerous forms such as hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking”, threatens our communities. Not only is the oil extraction process dangerous, but the pollution from extracting, refining and burning fossil fuels can be fatal. Even worse, fossil fuels are the main contributor to our current climate crisis and severely endangers current and future generations. BIPOC and low-income communities bear the brunt of these impacts. Read our fracking fact sheet

   
  The SanDiego350 Public Policy Team (PPT) supports and coordinates efforts across our committees to affect policy and legislation relating to climate change, with an emphasis on justice and equity. We research and analyze policy issues; create messaging; attend city and county level meetings; and meet with, educate, and advocate for effective climate change policies and legislation with elected officials and policymakers at the local and state level. We educate our members and the general public on advocacy skills and climate change policies to combat the climate crisis. In order to engage those who are most impacted by climate change, we collaborate with many allies.
  Youth4Climate (Y4C) is empowering youth activists with climate change education, skill building, leadership and activism opportunities.
 

The Renewable Energy Committee advocates for 100% clean energy throughout the region, supporting the expansion of community choice energy programs, and policies to support rooftop solar.

The Future of Solar Energy in California
 
  The Fundraising Team establishes and fosters relationships with supporters, donors, and the greater San Diego community and raises revenue to support and grow SD350’s programs.
  Our team provides marketing and communications support for SanDiego350, including campaign strategy development and execution, messaging development, and content strategy and development across various channels.
  MET welcomes and integrates new members into SanDiego350, and facilitates educational, training and social events for the SD350 community.
 

Our mission is to help SanDiego350 build a powerful anti-racist climate movement centered on equity, inclusivity, and climate justice. We will do this by educating SD350 members, amplifying Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) voices, and working with partners against white supremacy and for environmental justice.

 

The Interfaith Coalition for Earth Justice was founded by the previous SanDiego350 Interfaith Team and is a separate organization which SanDiego350 participates in and supports. 

The Coalition believes that our faiths call us to work on climate action that honors and sustains all religions, peoples, and creatures and which is grounded in love, justice, and compassion.

The Coalition focuses on climate education, political advocacy, movement building, and direct action and works to nurture creation care efforts of the diverse faith communities of our area.

Our team is here to support your congregation or faith community who are interested in learning about how to address climate change. We provide free customized climate workshops and can coach you in starting a creation-care or “green” team.

We are looking for congregations, clergy, and active laypeople who want to get involved in the Coalition’s work. 

Read more about ICEJ on their website. Please contact Rev. Jeanette Bragunier and ICEJ.

Y4C Adult Team members bring their skills and passions to support Y4C programs. We collaborate with youth teams to put Y4C’s vision into action through dynamic trainings, impactful educational presentations, and fun community-building events. 

Y4C empowers youth to step into positions of leadership and create a community with other youth concerned about the climate. Adults and youth collaborate on our planning teams to produce engaging events and programs. In addition to providing guidance on project management, adults provide continuity between semesters and breaks, when youth teams often reconfigure.

The Y4C Adult Team welcomes new members who wish to support youth climate leaders. To get involved, fill out SD350’s Volunteer Interest Form and tick “Adult Support for youth initiatives” under the Youth4Climate volunteer team section. You can also contact Jennifer Phelps for more information!

 

The Eco-Club Coalition (ECC), a Youth4Climate program, welcomes high school clubs interested in making a larger impact on the world. The ECC meets monthly to connect student leaders and help them inspire each other by sharing projects and ideas. We are an inclusive and diverse group of students from over 15 schools throughout San Diego. By strategizing together, we discover the best ways to use our collective power to mobilize students and organize impactful events.

The ECC youth leaders collaboratively plan meetings that help you establish a new club, get feedback on strengths and weaknesses, or take your existing club to the next level. Our voices are more powerful together!

Join the Eco Club Coalition!
