Welcome to 350 Maine!
The way climate activism should be...
Global Divestment Day of Action
The fossil fuel industry is both fueling the climate crisis and blocking serious action. On Global Divestment Day, we will call on our institutions -- our schools, our governments, and our places of worship -- to divest from destruction. Each act of divestment takes back power from fossil fuel companies and helps create a mandate for our leaders to take real action.
Be part of Global Divestment Day on February 13th-14th. Click here to find an event near you or start your own.
350 Maine is currently working with churches, municipalities, foundations and nonprofits on fossil fuel divestment. To sign an open letter from people of faith about divestment, click here. To start a campaign in your town, read this letter from the 350Maine Divestment Team.
Please review this informal 350 Maine Calendar for current updates on developing events in 2015. (We hope to have our top-of-the-webpage Calendar links updated soon.)
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.
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.
