Greetings, climate organizing friends at 350 groups all over the PNW,

See our slides from Monday’s call for more info and those handy LINKS!

I’m happy to be sharing these meeting notes from our regional call this past Monday (so wonderful to see all your faces!) and also regrettably sending these a bit later than I’d hoped. Thanks to those of you who helped by capturing so much of this and sending it along, and thank you all with your patience with me as a person with reduced typing function who would really like to do a better job in my turnaround time to you all so I can be truly supportive! Hmmm, this really has me thinking about how much fun it would be to create a regional newsletter with some support from y’all…

I hope folx were able to attend the wonderful New Rules for Fossil Fuels event in Washington yesterday, and the Puget Sound Energy Mock Trial today at noon. There is so very much wonderful organizing going on in our region!

New Rule for Fossil Fuels (WA)
From Renaissance (he/him) at 350 Seattle- New Rules For Fossil Fuels: webinar 3/23. Sign on letter for 350 WA local groups in progress and will be ready soon. Big update:  Gov. Inslee gave a 2 month addition to Dep. Ecology’s previous schedule. In the short term the sign on letter will have a very short turn around BUT the formal hearing period which was supposed to start in April will now be pushed back to May. and this will push back the Zoom hearing (where public testimony will happen) to June/early summer. The decision into law will likely happen Dec 2. instead of October. Stay tuned! ALSO. A sea shanty on the NRFF is coming out in mid April!! Get excited.

Forestry Conservation/Carbon Sequestration
From Patty (she/her) at 350 Eugene: Forest and Climate alliance – brand new! Multi state climate and conservation groups coming together. Interesting to explore together.

Global Just Recovery Gathering – our global community’s climate retreat!
Ever wondered how to share’s global work with your local group or how to learn from climate activists in another part of the world? If so, read on! is organizing a virtual global just recovery gathering April 9-11th aimed at skilling up the climate movement, with inspiring panels and trainings and intersectional connections across movements. While we encourage you to check out the full program, here are highlights of US team offerings, including multiple sessions led by local group leaders! 
The gathering will be intergenerational, multilingual and inclusive around access needs; interpretation and access requests are noted on the registration form. Many sessions held during US time zones will have Spanish/ English interpretation. We look forward to seeing you and thousands of our global colleagues soon!
For 350 Local Groups, here’s 5 ways you can get involved and support the event:

  1. Pre-register to attend! 
  2. Help to promote the event broadly with your group and partners in your community (via email lists, websites and social media channels).
  3. Help to promote the event with new/ potential volunteers who you’re hoping to engage and circle back with them around local opportunities to stay involved (we’ll also be letting gathering attendees know about ways to be involved with 350’s national campaigns).
  4. Plan a distanced watch-party where you and others from your local group attend sessions (from your own homes) at the same time and then discuss together at a future meeting.
  5. Decide which sessions (the schedule will be posted later this month) folks from your group will attend and report back on key learnings at a future meeting.
