As promised, Larry dyed his hair pink in honor of hitting our Goal for #GivingTuesday!  (See video above.)

As 2019 comes to a close, the Team at 350 Chicago is reflecting on its accomplishments over the past year

and looking ahead to great things in store for 2020… 

 

In 2019, the 350 Chicago team accomplished these goals among others:

    • Supported, promoted, and participated in the Global Youth Climate Strikes
    • Aided McKinley Park Front Line Communities against a polluting asphalt plant
    • Mobilized Chicagoans to drop off petitions at Congressional offices in support of the Green New Deal
    • Hosted the lecture ‘Deep Decarbonation’ with Professor George Crabtree
    • Hosted training for non-violent direct action training during the Midwest stop of the Promise to Protect Tour
    • Hosted monthly environmental education presentations on topics from  solar energy to 350 & partner efforts
    • Broadened its active volunteer base
    • Gained non-profit status with State of Illinois  

 

Our priorities for 2020: 

    • The City of Chicago Fossil Fuel Divestment Campaign
    • Advocacy for renewable energy infrastructure and jobs 
    • Support for front line communities fighting polluting industries 
    • Further education and mobilization of Chicagoans for fighting the climate crisis 
    • Further increase its active volunteer base
    • Completion of the 501(C)(3) application process 
    • And more plans to come

 

We hope you will consider giving generously to help us continue to combat the climate crisis in 2020.  Your donation is tax-deductible.

End-of-year donations are being accepted now and will continue through December 31st, 2019.

Many thanks!
