Billionaire Bankers for Big Oil
Saturday, October 2, 2021
“Billionaire Bankers for Big Oil” will be celebrating their fabulous wealth, gained from investing in new fossil fuel projects, at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 2, in front of the Chase Bank (their fave!) at the corner of North Hamilton and East Mifflin Streets in Madison!
Come and watch them frolic, dance, and pontificate, as you shop for local produce at the Dane County Farmers’ Market on the Capitol Square!
Car Free for the Climate 9/15 – 10/15
What is Car Free for the Climate?
Car Free for the Climate is a month-long event to raise awareness about the climate crisis and encourage more people to take action. Challenge yourself to go car-free and promote more sustainable modes of transportation! You can support 350 Madison and help build a strong climate movement in Wisconsin.
Who can participate?
Anyone who shares our mission to create a just, sustainable world powered by clean, renewable energy!
How can you join in on the fun?
Create a fundraising page and share your personal goal for cycling, walking, or using public transit. Pledge to go car-free 5, 10, or 15 days out of the month. Reach out to family and friends for support!
You can take action and promote healthy alternatives to driving. Transportation accounts for the largest portion of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions— 29%. By highlighting the importance of replacing vehicle trips with people-powered alternatives and transit, you can help protect the planet we all love!
Thank you to our sponsors!
Weekly Actionars Are Back!
“What is an Actionar?” you might ask. It’s a remote meeting in which the main focus is taking action for climate justice – Together!
These meetings will begin at 7 pm on Tuesdays and will wrap up by 8 pm. They’ll include tips for effectively communicating with the decision makers who have the power to stop fossil fuel developments that are threatening our survival.
You’ll want to show up with either pen and paper or a phone with text messaging capability. In most of the actionars, we will spend time crafting and sending messages to President Biden urging him to Stop the Money Pipeline, that steady stream of loan money flowing into the bank accounts of fossil fuel companies. Biden has taken some steps to disrupt the Money Pipeline, but we need him to do more.
With the Glasgow climate talks fast approaching, now is the time to make the drumbeat for climate justice steady and relentless. So Jump In And Join The Next Actionar. Coming soon to a screen near you.
