Tar Sands Campaign

Stop Tar Sands Expansion in Wisconsin! Most people have heard of the Keystone XL pipeline and the threat it would have posed to the climate and the environment. Much less well known is the fact that the world’s largest pipeline carries toxic tar sands oil right through Wisconsin, including Dane County. 350 Madison invites you to join the fight against tar sands expansion in Wisconsin!

Divestment Campaign

The 350 Madison Divestment Campaign is part of an international movement pressing universities and colleges (including UW–Madison), local governments, religious organizations, other institutions to sell off fossil fuel assets and invest in cleaner alternatives. If it's wrong to wreck the planet, then it's wrong to profit from that wreckage! Join us—sign our petition urging UW to divest!
