Next monthly meeting — Monday, May 1, 2017
Moving Beyond Coal to Clean Energy
Thousands came out for the Madison Climate March on Earth Day. We marched together from the Capitol to MGE to ask our local utility company to lead the way in transitioning away from its heavy reliance on coal.
Now we’ll bring that inspiration and energy to our May 1 monthly meeting, where we’ll learn more about state and local efforts to move from coal to clean energy. Our guest speaker will be Devin Martin, one of the lead organizers of the Climate March and an organizing representative with the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal Campaign. We’ll also hear an eyewitness report on the April 29 People’s Climate March in DC.
Following the talk, we’ll break out into smaller groups to talk about issues of particular interest, including:
- Divestment: Final planning for Madison’s March for Divestment on May 5
- Community Energy: Next Steps on MGE and other community energy actions
- 350 Madison Operations: 350 Madison’s new Outreach, Response, and Fundraising Teams
WHAT: 350 Madison Monthly Meeting
WHEN: Monday, May 1, 7:00-8:45

350 Madison monthly meetings are open to the public. Typically held the first Monday of the month, they offer an opportunity to be inspired by a diverse group of climate activists who share personal stories and talents and support our campaigns, events, and direct actions. These meetings are a great way to learn about what 350 Madison does, meet other 350’ers, and find the best place to plug in to the action. Please join us!
