350 CT Fights for Climate Justice

JOIN US!

350 CT is the Connecticut chapter of 350.org.  In 2008, a group of professors and concerned scientists founded the now-international, mass-action, grassroots campaign to curb climate change by demanding an immediate timetable to phase out the burning of fossil fuels.

Our mission in CT is to work towards:

  • 100% Renewable Energy
  • An End to Fracked Gas ExpansionPayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!
  • Green Jobs for Fossil Fuel Workers
  • An End to Environmental Racism
  • Mass Transit for All

We do this by meeting monthly, hosting educational speakers, and forming relevant committees to achieve specific goals. We work with other organizations to form a united front because our opposition is the fossil fuel industry.  We take our actions seriously – chipping away at the massive carbon-burning systems is no easy work.  We need help.  We need all the help we can get.  Please Join Us.
