Want to get involved in advocating for scientifically sound and socially equitable climate policy in Washington state?
Want to join a meaningful and accessible volunteer campaign that supports your growth, learning, and leadership development as an advocate for climate justice?
Last year our volunteer-powered team successfully mobilized people across Washington to take a collective total of over 18,000 climate policy advocacy actions in the 2021 legislative session. This year, we’re focusing more than ever on building an accessible and equitable community where volunteers can develop the organizing and leadership skills it takes to do sound and just policy advocacy work.
The 350 WA Civic Action Team is a volunteer-powered climate policy advocacy campaign that works to keep justice at the core of everything we do. With a focus on strengthening community partnerships, our mission is to educate and empower people to advocate in the WA state legislature to pass strong, sound, and just climate policy.
