Workgroups

Workgroups are how 350 Seattle organizes itself into areas of interest and function. If you don’t see something you think should be here, let us know, and we can think about starting a new workgroup.

Keep it in the Ground focuses on the regional and national issues around tar sands, oil transport, and Arctic drilling. 

This workgroup focuses on examining the ways that white privilege and subtle forms of racism are unintentionally embedded in the climate movement, Contact Lisa Marcus or Diane Shisk.

Community Solutions focuses on community-based efforts towards a renewable economy, like transit, community solar, and affordable housing. The facilitator is Patrick Mazza.

Infrastructure supports the growth of 350 Seattle by holding down the “behind the scenes” work: data, admin, fundraising, finance, etc. It’s way more fun than it sounds. The facilitator is Valerie Costa, valerie@350seattle.org

Families Uniting Now creates a fun, supportive space where families can come to learn how to take action together., The facilitator is Sue Lenander.

The Policy & Economics Workgroup has two parts–the Civic Action Team and Economic Policy/MMT. The facilitator is Selden Prentice, seldenpre@350seattle.org
