To change everything, it takes everyone!

We’d love to have you join us in fighting for a livable planet! It will take every one of us, and there’s an important role to play, whatever your skills and interests.

Check out our current volunteer openings…

We have many volunteer needs and appreciate contributions at any level. You can check out whether 350 Madison is right for you by attending our monthly meetings or getting in touch with one of our teams (see below). Here, we list specific positions we’re seeking to fill. If you’re interested, please contact 350 Coordinator Gail Nordheim.

Co-Coordinator

This position works with the other Co-Coordinator on administrative management of 350 Madison. This includes setting agendas for Coordinating Council (CC) meetings, ensuring that key administrative functions are carried out, coordinating strategic planning, and conducting related activities. This is a great opportunity for someone with management experience who can volunteer 5–10 hours per week and attend CC meetings (second Thursday evening of the month). It is an essential position for keeping 350 Madison running!

Database Coordinator

This volunteer position manages our Action Network database. The person in this position coordinates with our Communication Action Team in sending emails to our supporters, adds names of new supporters to the database, and prepares reports as needed. We are looking for someone with good IT knowledge who likes working with data. The person in this position should have their own computer and should be able to volunteer an average of 1–2 hours per week. This position can be done remotely—no need to attend meetings.

Outreach Team Lead

This person coordinates 350 Madison outreach to the community. The major focus is arranging for informational tabling at festivals, farmers’ markets, and community events. Depending on the  volunteer’s interests, it could also involve coordinating presentations by 350 Madison members to civic groups, faith communities, and other groups. This is a great opportunity for a people-oriented person with good organizational skills. The time commitment varies depending on upcoming events, but  averages about 1–2 hours per week.

Meet our teams…

350 Madison relies on two types of teams to accomplish our mission. Campaign teams work on core advocacy goals, while operations teams support the campaigns. See something you’d be good at or something you’d like to learn how to do?

Campaign Teams

Tar Sands

The Tar Sands Team 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.

Contact: Anne Reynolds, Anne.Reynolds@350madison.org

Divest & Defund

2016 was the hottest year on record; 2017 was the second-hottest. The Divest & Defund 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

The Community 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.
