Federal Policy

Lobbying the U.S. President and Congress to pass strong climate legislation. 

We work to ensure our President, two U.S. Senators and Congress members support just environmental and climate policies and oppose any that threaten environmental or climate justice by: 

  1. Tracking, sharing, analyzing, and prioritizing key bills and votes; 
  2. Building and sustaining strong connections with our elected representatives and their staff by organizing grassroots pressure through meetings, calls, letters, petitions, and protests; 
  3. Building our team, 350 Seattle, national allies, and the climate justice movement by signing on to letters, petitions and solidarity actions. 

In 2023, we advocated with Congressional offices for stronger climate provisions in the Farm Bill, worked with a coalition of other climate groups to stop a major pipeline expansion called GTN Xpress, and lobbied our senators to demand that Biden declare a Climate Emergency. In 2024, these projects (and more) will continue!

Mission

The Federal Policy Team works to persuade our President, two U.S. Senators and Congress members to vote “green” on climate justice bills.

Intersectionality and Trade Agreements

When I came to 350 Seattle and began focusing on the relationship between trade and climate in the proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), I noticed that trade agreements themselves are intersectional; they involve not just climate, but also worker rights, immigrant rights, food sovereignty, and, of course, the abuse of corporate power.
