In just seven years since our founding, 350 Bay Area, a 501 (c) (3) organization, has become the largest climate-focused grassroots organization in California, with over 16,000 supporters and advocacy activists, and six local groups in Marin, Sonoma, Napa, San Francisco, Contra Costa, and East Bay.
350 Bay Area has a record of working with broad coalitions to organize large public demonstrations and marches, for which we are able to mobilize thousands of participants to bring attention to local issues impacting climate change. That increased public awareness and demand for action prepares the way for our deep policy work, where we act at the state, agency, and local level to get emissions-reduction policies passed.
A major part of the 350 Bay Area community is our legislative and electoral focused
350 Bay Area Action, a 501(c) (4) non profit organization, for which donations are not tax deductible. 350 Bay Area and 350 Bay Area Action are guided by the same mission and vision,
and share resources: staff, fund development and communications teams.
See the accompanying document that further explains the work of 350 Bay Area Action.
350 Bay Area and Bay Area Action’s shared mission is to build a grassroots climate movement in the Bay Area and beyond to eliminate carbon pollution and press for socially equitable solutions and a just transition to clean energy. Our vision is that all who live in the Bay Area equitably share clean air, water, and soil in a healthy, thriving, and stable post-carbon future, benefiting all life.
