East Bay 350 -- Founding Meeting-- 2/22


Please join us to launch an East Bay 350 group (or maybe an Alameda County 350 and a Contra Costa County 350 group) at the Oakland Unitarian Church on Saturday February 22 from 10 AM - Noon.
Just think of all that we can do with our city, county, and special district governmental agencies in the East Bay--
We can join all the existing 350 Bay Area campaigns:  
    • Pass Divestment resolutions
    • Pass Stop Fracking resolutions (following Marin County's lead!)
    • Build the movement to stop tar sands and other dirty oil refining in the 5 East Bay refineries
    • Stop the dirty oil Wespac facility in Pittsburg
    • Pass ordinances to require warning labels on gas pumps linking gasoline to climate change and promoting clean alternatives
    • Make Chevron clean up their act and improve their safety and hold them accountable
    • Make sure our elected officials support the BayCAP plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 80% by 2050
And we can come up with our own campaigns and support existing efforts by our allies:
    • Bring community choice clean energy to the East Bay
    • Promote solar and wind alternatives
    • Promote public transit, bikes, and transit oriented development
    • Support home insulation, energy efficiency and conservation
    • Support people getting electric vehicles and charging stations running on clean energy
    • Make sure the Port of Oakland does not export coal
    • BYOI (Bring Your Own Ideas!)
The climate crisis is getting worse by the day.  We are fortunate to live in a place where public awareness is high, and we can expect our elected officials to be responsive.  Along with all of the Bay Area, we can lead the nation into a fossil fuel free future, but we need YOU to help build this movement!
