350.org Donor Bulletin: December 2019350.org
Dear friends,

If you’ll allow me to get a little melodramatic — this is the last donor newsletter of the year and the decade, the very same decade that 350 celebrated our ten year anniversary. We also celebrated the largest mobilization in world history — once again proving to ourselves the extraordinary inspiration of people rising up in all corners of the globe. This rising was the spark that lit 350 ten years ago.

But 2019 has been a lot different than past years. We sailed through more record breaking temperatures and extreme wildfires and floods. We watched as country after country elected greedy shills of the fossil fuel industry. We saw climate change, inequality, and assaults on human dignity take a painful toll on far too many.

In the new year we will have, as we always do, a chance to turn the page — yes, of a calendar, but also to a way of thinking about and enacting our work in a new reality. The climate crisis is becoming more serious and everywhere institutions and those who run them are not stepping up to the challenge.

History has shown us that people power closes this gap. And the great news about people power is it’s a renewable resource that we all contribute to every single day.

You do that for us. You have stepped up for us in so many ways this year. Your generosity and belief in us has propelled us through these hard times and sharpened our focus for the work to come.

As always, we feature a few stories this month to highlight our work around the world — and I hope you’ll enjoy them.

Thank you so much,

May Boeve
