To change everything, it takes everyone!
We are an unstoppable movement of everyday people from diverse communities around Wisconsin, working together for justice and an end to the climate crisis. We challenge government, community, and business leaders to rapidly implement the far-reaching changes and solutions we need.
We’d love to have you join us in fighting for a livable planet! It will take every one of us, and there’s an important role to play, whatever your skills, whatever your interests, whatever amount of time you have.

350 Wisconsin relies on two types of teams to accomplish our mission. Campaign teams work on core advocacy goals, while operations teams support the campaigns. See something you’d be good at or something you’d like to learn how to do? Fill out this form to let us know your interests, and we’ll schedule a time to talk about how you can best contribute.
The Art Collective is a group of fun-loving people, passionate about averting the climate crisis through the use of creative, humorous, and artistic means. You don’t have to be an artist to join us! We can use help in all sorts of roles — there’s a place for everyone.

The Climate Justice Team is responsible for elevating climate and racial justice as a priority within 350 Wisconsin, raising the awareness of our leaders and members regarding systemic racism and actions they can take to fight racism in both the climate movement and their personal lives, and supporting BIPOC-led organizations in their work to achieve social and climate justice goals.

Community Climate Solutions
350 Wisconsin’s Community Climate Solutions Team (CCST) creates a livable climate for all by:
- Helping our region’s governments and institutions set and achieve just, equitable climate goals as fast as possible; and
- Increasing climate awareness, engagement, and action among the citizens and residents of our region.
We’re already achieving significant results — see CCST Action Highlights for an overview — and with your help, we can do much more.

The Divest & Defund Team works to convince institutions that investments in fossil fuels are not only ethically and fiscally irresponsible, but are literally wrecking the planet we call home — all for profit. We are currently focusing on banks that fund pipeline projects.
Meetings: Fourth Mondays, 7:00–8:30 pm
State Policy Group
The State Policy Group promotes strong, progressive state climate policy. This state-level work complements our rapidly expanding efforts to support local governments in transitioning to renewable energy.

The Tar Sands Team is fighting Enbridge tar sands pipelines in Wisconsin. Our aims are to stop the proposed expansion of Enbridge’s Line 5 oil pipeline in northern Wisconsin and achieve the shutdown of the entire Line 5, and to halt plans for a Line 66 in the Line 61 corridor. We support efforts led by those most impacted, including tribes, landowners, and affected community members.
