Climate Citizen Advocacy Training

What can you do to fight for climate justice given the incoming Trump administration and its climate-denying leaders, if you have an hour, two hours, or five hours a week? What does the 350 in 350 Seattle stand for? How can we get on a path to climate stability when the United Nations Environmental Programme has just warned that the world has three years to act far more aggressively on climate change before we reach a dangerous tipping point?

Come learn about the fight for a stable climate and even more importantly, about what you can do to help. We will be focusing on state level political lobbying and advocacy, specifically on aggressively updating WA state's limits for greenhouse gases. You can join a civic action team to lobby our elected officials on climate policy.

In July 2016, 350 Seattle and Our Children’s Trust led a hunger strike outside the Capitol Building in Olympia to protest the weak Clean Air Rule that the Dept. of Ecology had proposed. The rule did not require the necessary cuts to pollution that would put us on a path of reducing carbon dioxide to 350 parts per million (ppm), which is the point at which our climate can begin to recover.

Our Children’s Trust (OTC) has since drafted legislation that would update our state’s emissions targets to the necessary levels to achieve climate stability.

We need people power to move this legislation forward. We need people power to convince our elected officials that acting on climate change cannot be delayed any longer.
