Welcome to 350 Maine!
The way climate activism should be...
Students Are Taking-on Augusta:
The Maine Students for Climate Justice (MSCJ) continue to move forward with the “Generation Climate Rising: You Can’t Veto ME” event scheduled for April 11 (Facebook Page here). Over 1000 students will be assembling in Augusta to stand up for their future and insist that Maine government do the same.
Please contribute whatever you can in support of this powerful event. Financial contributions via this fundraising process will ensure optimal coordination and messaging, transportation support and offset other associated costs. If you know students or staff or faculty (especially high school-based), reach out to them and alert them to this action. Invite them to initiate organizing in their school by getting a capable, committed individual or small group of individuals to contact MSCJ via this form. If you are willing to support 350 Maine in our efforts to stand with MSCJ, be in touch with Michelle Fournier and Lee Chisholm — and see additional information here.
Please review the Calendar tab for upcoming events (and our 350 Maine Calendar for past and developing events in 2015).
NOTE: if you are interested in hosting a Tar Sands Healing Walk presentation in your area, please contact Lee Chisholm, Sarah Lachance or Hilary Clark. See a video of a 11/23/14 presentation in Damariscotta here.
If you are interested in hosting a presentation related to the “Clear Skies Ordinance” win in South Portland, please contact Bob Klotz.

What is 350 Maine?
We're building a grassroots network across the state to address the impending crises of global warming, climate change, and a world too much 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.
