The Policy workgroup consists of:
As we move into 2023 and 2024, 350 Seattle will be focussing on asking the President to declare a climate emergency, and pushing for climate provisions in the Farm Bill. We will also lobby our Congressional offices regarding trade issues where trade and climate policy intersect. Learn more at our Federal Climate Policy and Trade and Climate pages. And sign up for our federal listserv here.
Civic Action Team
Through the direct lobbying of elected officials we move them to advance bold climate legislation, and hold them accountable to the principles of climate justice. We have members across the state that regularly engage with elected representatives at the city, county and state levels. Join our community and help expand the movement pushing politicians for aggressive climate action on the Civic Action Team page (the CATs are now part of 350WA, but we’re still very much involved!).
Decarbonizing our state’s largest for-profit utility is no easy task, but by working in coalition with other regional climate groups, we can make progress. Updates on Puget Sound Energy’s 20-year planning process are posted on the Carbon-Free PSE page.
