350 Action is supporting the candidates below based on the following criteria:
Strong Climate Policy
A swift transition to 100% renewable energy, like wind and solar
No new fossil fuel projects, like oil pipelines and fracked gas power plants
Solidarity with the Climate Movement
From investigations, to lawsuits, to serious carbon taxes, and beyond, hold the fossil fuel industry accountable for their role in causing the climate crisis.
Support for the fossil fuel divestment movement. Not a penny more for dirty energy, whether through individual investments or federal subsidies.
Running as a Progressive Climate Champion
Our ability to survive and thrive doesn’t boil down to a single issue. We’re only supporting candidates willing to stand tall on climate AND other progressive issues, including: immigrant justice, LGBT rights, reproductive justice, racial justice, labor rights, healthcare for all, a family-sustaining minimum wage, public education, diplomacy-first foreign policy, the right to unionize, indigenous rights, gun safety, disability rights, trade justice, ending mass incarceration, reducing income inequality, and combating police violence.
Climate on the campaign trail. We want to elect leaders who speak from the heart and inspire the public. We think it’s especially important to talk about the intersection of climate and other social justice issues like immigration, racial justice, or income inequality in campaign speeches and communications.
It Takes All of Us to Change Everything
Representation matters. Women and people of color are too often are hit first and worst by climate change, yet underrepresented in our halls of power. We’d like to change that. Underrepresented race, gender, class, and sexual orientation identities will play a role in our endorsement decisions.
Solidarity with our allies. We’ll be looking to our progressive allies, frontline partners, labor unions, and other movement leaders for guidance on endorsements.
