350NYC is an all-volunteer led organization that relies on YOU to make things happen. We drive our campaigns and actions forward by the work we do in our working groups. Everyone is encouraged to join one of the working groups to get more involved with our campaigns and actions.

To make sure that we show up with a ‘bang’ on social media we need to stay on top of the visual aspect of rallies and other street actions. Join this group to plan art work for actions.
