Welcome to 350 Maine!
Break Free from Fossil Fuels
For a livable climate and a just transition to renewable energy, fossil fuels must be kept in the ground. No crude oil "bomb trains". No fracked gas or oil infrastructure. No more pollution. On May 14 we gather for a massive action to stop these dangerous trains in their tracks. Joining others all around the world, we will put our bodies in the way of fossil fuels to show the collective power of our movement. Learn more and sign up here: www.Albany2016.org
Are you ready to participate? Find out more, meet others similarly moved, and get yourself primed to travel with Mainers this May to Albany for the Break Free action of the American Northeast--by joining us at the Friends School of Portland (11 U.S. Route One in Cumberland) Saturday, April 23, 10-noon. For more information (both about that gathering and next steps) contact Lee Chisholm and Michelle Fournier.
We hope you can join us in Augusta on Friday, April 22 at 10:00 am for a rally and press conference as we deliver the petition signatures to Attorney General Janet Mills. We will be outside, between the Maine Legislature and Cross Office building.
For details on our upcoming meetings and events, see our calendar.

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 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.
