MISSION AND VISION
We are a grassroots, non-partisan local affiliate of 350.org. We are building a local and global climate movement to transition from fossil fuels to clean energy and grow a local food system. Our vision is just and resilient communities in Ventura County.
We believe the carbon dioxide concentrations must be drawn down to 350 part per million as soon as possible. We work for social justice and inclusion, science and technology, incorporating the arts, multimedia, and the spiritual and moral framework for action. We seek solutions related to just and sustainable economic development, resilient communities engaged in solutions, regenerative agriculture, and carbon sequestration. We also seek to ally with communities most affected by climate change.
We encourage working groups to study issues and produce and promote events and campaigns not happening in Ventura County.
We encourage city climate action coalitions to demand urgent action by officials in the ten cities and by Ventura County agencies and entities.
We welcome participation in coordinating meetings to plan activities — one to three short meetings per month on Thursdays at 5.
We gather local climate news from other organizations ideally by the 26th of the month to include in a first of the month and sometimes also a midmonth newsletter, according what the communications team hopes interests people, along with included or separate action alerts and event reminders.
We maintain a Facebook page and welcome more people helping with our social media.
We hold a General Meeting each month, often on a Thursday at 6:30 pm at the Unitarian-Universalist Church of Ventura, 5654 Ralston Street, Ventura, CA 93003.
We are currently unincorporated, grassroots with no bank account or fiscal sponsor. We welcome volunteers who want to build the material resources of the chapter.
We meet by zoom to not be spreaders of covid-19 virus.
