350MKE Fridays for Future: Friday, october 7, 12:00 - 1:00pm (MORE...)
campaign for the climate: 2022 election actions - what's your interest?
Start today! (MORE...)
350MKE is joining forces with 350 Wisconsin Action and other organizations to give our members some options to take action and make a difference in the Wisconsin 2022 mid-term election.
The upcoming midterm election will have huge consequences for the climate. Governor Evers and Mandela Barnes are climate champions who will fight for strong, just climate policy. Their opponents are dangerous climate deniers. The choice cannot be more clear.
We need your help to re-elect Tony Evers for Governor and to elect Mandela Barnes to the Senate!
Reach out to young voters with NextGen (more...)
“NextGen is the nation’s largest youth voting organization that’s using innovative digital and field strategies to turn out young voters in key states. We’re empowering the largest and most diverse generation in American history through voter education, registration and mobilization. At NextGen we share lessons learned with the broader progressive community to build a stronger, more nimble and effective democracy.”
We will be joining NextGen on Tuesday, September 20, for tabling at Madison College, UW Milwaukee, Marquette, UW Oshkosh, and UW Stout. You will talk to students about the importance of voting and encourage them to sign “I pledge to vote” cards. Training is provided. (Note that this is a nonpartisan event.) Click below to learn more and sign up for a 2 hour tabling shift.
letter to the editor team (more...)
Writing letters to the editor. Letters to the editor– in both print and online newspapers–are an effective way to reach persuadable voters. You can join 350 Wisconsin Action in writing letters to newspapers across the state, endorsing Barnes and Evers and stressing the importance of voting for clean water, renewable energy and green jobs. You will receive a comprehensive list of newspapers with instructions for how to submit letters to them. We’ll also provide a toolkit with sample letters that you can use and modify. And if you like, we’d be happy to edit your letters before you submit them.
voter canvassing (some paid positions) (more...)
Citizen Action: Every Saturday, we are launching canvasses in Eau Claire, Wausau, Green Bay, and Milwaukee to talk to voters right at their doors. We’re talking with voters in a new way to connect on a more human level through a deep canvassing methodology, which is proven to be more effective in moving voters to vote more in line their own values and interests, and to motivate people to get to the polls.

The Outreach Team:
Now Hiring Canvassers in Wisconsin!
It is critical that we maintain the Democratic majority in Congress. We are urgently hiring canvassers to register new voters in key districts to maintain a Democratic majority after the 2022 midterm elections. During this campaign, we will be focusing on registering underrepresented and marginalized voters. Now more than ever, it is crucial that we work to expand voting rights, increase voter turnout, and ensure that the electorate accurately reflects the true makeup of America.
Get paid well! Canvass positions start at $20/hour. Leadership positions start at $22/hour. We offer overtime pay, driver bonuses, shift bonuses, paid training, sick pay, and bonuses for friend referrals.
Locations: Milwaukee, WI | Madison, WI | Racine, WI | Green Bay, WI

phone bank team (more...)
Phone bank with Citizen Action of Wisconsin
On Wednesday, September 21 from 5-8PM , we'll be joining Citizen Action of Wisconsin for phone banking in support of Mandela Barnes. You'll receive phone banking training as part of the session, and you can phone from your home. Citizens Action uses a “deep canvassing” approach that encourages meaningful conversations with voters. When you click to participate in phone banking, we’ll send you the sign-up form.
Phone and text bank for the NAACP
The NAACP is seeking volunteers for phone and text banking. This is a message from Dominik Whitehead, Vice President of Campaigns:
“In previous elections, NAACP volunteers and members showed up in force, and demonstrated the power of their vote. Together, we inspired greater turnout within Black communities, leading to more representation at EVERY level including state and local governments, the White House, Congress, and even the Supreme Court. It’s on all of us to keep pushing for proper representation at a moment when our rights, our livelihoods, and our people are at risk.
Today, we’re asking you to join us during the upcoming election in calling or texting Black voters to exercise their right to power! You can help empower Black voters by signing up to volunteer.”
For more information and to volunteer, click here and you’ll be directed to the NAACP’s registration form.

Me energies: rally for affordable energy now
Saturday, October 15, 12pm. (MORE...)
Organized By: Sierra Club Wisconsin Chapter
Location: Zeidler Park - 301 W Michigan St, Milwaukee
Cassie Steiner email@example.com
Elizabeth Ward firstname.lastname@example.org
What is happening?
Before We Energies can increase how much it charges customers, it must get permission from the Public Service Commission (PSC), a branch of the government. They must explain how much money they need and why. The PSC asks the public and experts for input and decides how much to allow the utility to increase rates.
During 'rate cases' like these, We Energies often makes agreements with organizations that are concerned about the proposal.
What is We Energies asking for?
Increases to gas and electrical rates:
We Energies is claiming this increase is because they are building more clean energy, but they have also announced plans to keep expensive coal plants running. Last year, they announced plans to build a new gas storage facility, even though it was proven that an energy efficiency program would have saved ratepayers money.

Global Climate Strike: Chicago: September 23 (more...)
Coordinated with the Fridays For Future Global Climate Strike.
On September 23rd as many as 350 people, from children to near centenarians, marched through the streets of Chicago for two hours demanding the U.S. Federal Reserve, Chase Bank and our U.S. Representatives (Senators Durbin and Duckworth directly) address the mounting Climate Crisis through their respective financial and political channels.
WE MARCHED FOR CLIMATE REPARATIONS AND JUSTICE!
Join us for the Global Climate Strike as we demand policymakers and world leaders to prioritize #PeopleNotProfit! We demand that our Governments listen to MAPA voices and immediately work to provide Loss & Damage Finance to the communities most affected by the climate crisis. #FridaysForFuture
We're meeting at Pritzker Park and marching to the Federal Reserve Bank (short speeches). Then we'll march to Chase Bank Tower (short speeches and dance). From there we'll march to Senators Durbin & Duckworth's office building and then return to Pritzker Park.
You can find Michelle Eul's report and Instagram clip from the Global Climate Strike: Bern, Switzerland here.

It’s Now or Never Madison Rally: August 9, 2022 (MORE...)
Young people with Action for the Climate Emergency hosted a climate rally on Tuesday, August 9th at the WI State Capitol to get Governor Evers to Declare a Climate Emergency!
Tuesday was an important day: with statewide elections growing closer we need to show everyone that Climate Change should be a priority in this state. Who knows if we will have more leaders in office who believe in climate change, or if we have even less. That's why it's Now or Never for Governor Evers to use his powers to declare an emergency. Bring your pots and pans to be loud with us!

8 Things a Plastic-Free Expert Always Brings With Her to Restaurants and Food Trucks
"You may not think going out to eat at your favorite restaurant involves a lot of waste — unless you’re taking food to go. In that case, the establishment may send you home with all kinds of plastic, Styrofoam, and otherwise not-biodegradable containers. To make eating out a more sustainable affair, Marissa Jablonski, a plastic-free expert and the executive director at the Freshwater Collaborative of Wisconsin, keeps a to-go food kit in her car and bike bag." - Apartment Therapy
