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

I’m on my way out of New York City, where I’ve just spent the past ten days.

I’ve never had a week like this in all my years working with 350.org. Yes, I’ve marched in the streets — but never with millions around the world at the same time, and never surrounded by youth. Yes, I’ve attended UN summits, but never with the real truth of what’s at stake painstakingly pointed out by a young woman. Yes, I’ve felt whiplashed between sweet hopefulness and deep despair, but never have I felt the surge of energy knowing just how many people are feeling the same way.

The climate movement — and 350.org — turned a corner this week. We are stronger, more circumspect, and better equipped than ever.

You have been there with us through many moments that we hoped would be like this one — but this is different. Thank you for all you’ve done, supported, and enabled. Please soak in this moment and dig deep with us.

We certainly hope you will be with us for a long time, and quite frankly, your activism right now has never been more important – whether it is striking for the climate or calling politicians. But the future, and your climate legacy, is something we could all have a plan for.
