Julia Isaacs mJulia Isaacsoved to Madison in 2009 and joined 350 Madison in January 2012. Though new to environmental activism, she brings a long career in public policy and a life-long interest in improving opportunities for low-income children and families. Her leading to take action  on climate change is rooted in her Quaker faith and her understanding of how God is calling us to act in the world.




Beth Esser joined 350Madison in the Fall of 2013 after learning about Bill McKibben and his terrifying new math. With a B.A. in social work, concerns over climate change and environmental injustice are a natural part of her concern for a healthy & just world to live in. Her primary motivation for becoming a climate change activist however, comes from the love felt for her two young children whom she hopes will have a healthy and beautiful planet to live on.


Tar Sands Campaign

The Tar Sands Campaign is fighting Enbridge tar sands pipelines in Wisconsin. Our aims are to block expansion of Line 61 and to halt plans for an adjacent Line 66. We support efforts led by those most impacted, including tribes, landowners, and affected community members.

Divestment Campaign

2016 was the hottest year on record. The Divestment Team focuses on convincing institutions that investments in fossil fuel are not only ethically and fiscally irresponsible, but are literally wrecking the planet we call home—all for profit. Banks are our current focus since without their support, dirty pipeline projects can't get funded.

Community Energy Campaign

The Community Energy Team is focused on taking action on and responsibility for our own fossil fuel use. We work to create and change policies that impact our energy use and nurture a culture of reducing energy use and using clean, renewable energy to reduce our carbon footprint.
