We are 350 Bay Area.

We are here for justice. The climate crisis magnifies systemic injustices: racial, economic and environmental. We mobilize people as climate activists, building the civic engagement & advocacy that are essential to solve the climate crisis. We organize, demonstrate, lobby, and educate, pushing policymakers to meet the urgency of the climate emergency.

Our mission: build a grassroots climate movement in the Bay Area and beyond to eliminate carbon pollution and achieve a clean energy future with racial, economic, and environmental justice.

Rooted in our Platform

End toxic air pollution, prioritizing the heavily impacted front-line communities

Ensure resilient, safe, affordable clean energy - and clean energy jobs

Create a fast transition to healthy, clean-energy buildings

Speed the shift to carbon-free, affordable, safe and accessible mobility for everyone

Accelerate the fossil fuel end game and achieve a just transition

Our Operating Principles

To move towards our goals, our work identifies and promotes policies that:

  • Keep justice at the center
  • Rapidly eliminate emissions in transportation, energy generation, and buildings
  • Set bold climate targets based on science and our lived experiences
  • Shift from an extractive economy to a just and regenerative society

How we do our work:

  • People are the heart of our work. We put recruitment, training, mentoring and supporting activists at the center of our operations.
  • We organize collaboratively both internally and externally to achieve results.
  • We intentionally and strategically grow our political power in order to influence climate policy.
  • We measure our progress both in movement building and in implemented solutions.
