Building a grassroots movement to solve the climate crisis isn’t easy, and we could use your help.  We’ve got lots of specific needs for 9/24 Moving Connecticut, our big statewide day of action.  If you can help, the best way to let us know is to signup here:

Lend a hand: 9/24 Volunteer Signup Form

Want to get started right away? Email us at [email protected] and let us know what you’re up for helping with — we need all kinds of help including making banners, posting fliers, shuttling tables around, etc. Or dive in right this second with these five things you can do to help build this movement:

Write a personal appeal to your friends and family asking them to join us on 9/24.  Tell them why this is important to you, and speak from the heart.  It often happens that we support or pour ourselves into things and we forget to tell the people closest to us what we’re doing or why we’re doing it.  If you’re giving your time and energy to help our state move beyond fossil fuels toward a brighter future, your friends should know about it.  See Genevieve’s personal appeal here, and post your own in the comments below when you send it out.

Help build our list of supporters by tabling for 350CT or talking to friends and collecting names and emails.  Enter the email addresses in (one by one) at https://350ct.org/signup/ or send them to [email protected].  Either way — make sure they get to us!

Help build our list of partners  Partner organizations are ones that support 9/24 Moving CT and agree to publicize the event, though many of our partners are doing much more than that.  Partner organizations are the bread and butter of the coalition organizing we’re doing.  Talk to organizations you’re a part of or know about and ask them if they can partner with us for a day to get beyond fossil fuels.  There’s no money involved.  Let us know at [email protected] so we can put them up on the partners website.

Post fliers.  Post them everywhere!  Talk to coffee shops and ask if they’ll post our flier in a special place as a sign of support.  The fliers can be downloaded at https://350ct.org/move/flier/, and we’ve got printed copies, too.  Artistic?  Design your own flier and send it our way so we can post it on the website.  Just make sure it has 350ct.org/move on it, and the correct date and location (4pm 9/24 New Haven Green).  We’d love to see someone do tree-ribbons again, too.  We’ll buy the ribbon.  And we’ve got tons of Buzz Boxes to be made.

Give us some Facebook love.  Make sure you’re signed up at the Moving Connecticut FB event and that you’ve Liked 350 Connecticut.  Check back on 350 Connecticut and Like some of the posts like this one.  The more people that Like a post, the more it will be seen by the rest of the world.  And don’t forget to invite your CT friends to the Moving Connecticut FB event, too!

Have other ideas or talents?  Get in touch directly and let us know what you can do.  You can email us at organizers -at- 350CT -dot- org.
