Deep Canvass in Plymouth

After the election, realizing how politically and geographically polarized Minnesota is, we decided that we needed to try something new. We think it’s time to start actively bridge-building between urban, suburban, and greater MN to shift hearts and minds on climate change and clean energy. That’s why MN350 is hosting Deep Canvasses to help change the game on climate change and clean energy. A Deep Canvass is doorknocking with personal, values based conversations focused on […]

Post-Paris Pledge to Defend Our Communities

The Trump Administration has pulled out of the Paris Climate Accords, the binding global agreement created to address climate change. This move represents a grave risk to the health and safety of our communities and our planet. The President has clearly sided with fossil fuel CEO’s and against the American people, 70% of whom believe climate change is happening and want to limit carbon pollution. We cannot rely on corporate elites to face this global crisis.

Global Divestment Week – Divest & MNvest!

Minnesotans have long appreciated our state’s lakes, rivers, forests and farmlands, yet climate change threatens our state’s treasures through rising temperatures, extreme weather events, and degraded air and water quality. These climate impacts also threaten our economy, agriculture, and public health. Yet individual Minnesotans can only do so much. Minnesota businesses and banks are profiting from investments that contribute to climate change and hurt our communities. For example, U.S. Bank invests in the fossil fuel […]
