Welcome to 350 Maine!
In Boston on Saturday, December 12th, 350 Maine joined a diverse coalition including over 140 labor unions and workers’ rights groups, climate and environmental groups, and faith and social justice groups from across New England (see list here) to rally and march for Jobs, Justice, and Climate! As the UN climate negotiations in Paris concluded—reflecting some progress but falling far short of the dramatic changes we need—we raised our voices together to have the last word. The rest is up to us! Thank you to everyone who participated and made this event a success.
Sherri Mitchell of the Maine Penobscot Tribe addressed the crowd.
About 100 Mainers, including dozens of student members of Maine Students for Climate Justice, joined around 1,500 people from across New England for the rally and march. See more photos and media coverage of the event on our Facebook page!

What is 350 Maine?
We're building a grassroots network across the state to address the crisis of climate change and a world too dependent on dirty fossil fuels.
Together, under the banner of the message and organizing model of 350.org, we're forging a path to a cleaner, more sustainable future that puts the long term health of the planet and its inhabitants above the short term profits of energy companies.
