There is no climate justice without racial justice.

We’re in a time of multiple crises: virulent racism and police violence; a global pandemic; widespread unemployment; extreme polarization in the political sphere; and of course, the climate emergency.

It’s also a time of movement and transformative possibility. It can feel dizzying, trying to track all that’s going on. Check out our Get Involved! page to connect with our campaigns and teams. To plug into the racial justice movement, consider following the Movement for Black Lives and — locally — Urban Triage, Freedom Inc, and Free the 350 Bail Fund.

350 Madison stands in solidarity with people the world over who are working for justice, equity, and preservation of a livable planet. Climate justice works hand in hand with racial and social justice, and we won’t stop working until all are achieved.

Tar Sands

The Tar Sands Campaign mobilizes people to oppose new oil pipelines in WI. Our current goal is to block Enbridge’s rerouting of Line 5 in the Lake Superior watershed. We support efforts led by those most impacted, including tribes, landowners, and community members.

Divest & Defund

The Divest & Defund Team works to convince institutions that investments in fossil fuels are not only ethically and fiscally irresponsible, but are literally wrecking the planet we call home—all for profit. We are currently focusing on banks that fund pipeline projects.

Climate Solutions

Community Climate Solutions focuses on making change across Dane County, targeting both systems and individual levels. We assist local governments to achieve climate goals. We broaden and deepen citizen climate crisis awareness and action.
