A HUGE thank you to all those who marched with us and supported us as we traveled to NYC on September 21, 2014, to participate in the People’s Climate March.  We are so honored to have been part of this record setting march for the climate.  350 Madison is proud to have sent 150 marchers from Madison along with numerous supporters back home.

With 400,000 people in NYC, and 2808 solidarity events in 160 countries, we took to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach:  a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities.

 With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we took a stand to bend the course of history and we will keep on marching in our local communities, demanding climate action NOW!

350 Madison’s involvement in the People’s Climate March (PCM) would not have been possible without the outstanding work of Mary Beth Elliott.  Months ago, Mary Beth took the lead on organizing our entire trip and we are deeply grateful for her time, energy, enthusiasm, commitment, and special personal touch in every detail of our trip.  Our involvement in the PCM was a success due to her efforts!

Many thanks to all those who took pictures, especially our photographer, Monika Blazs.

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.
