350 Action supports climate progressives running for federal, state, and local office.
If you are a candidate seeking a 350 Action endorsement — and you believe your platform fits with our values and vision as described below — you should start by filling out our candidate questionnaire.
Show up for our movements. Join local pipeline fights, marches, sit-ins, and work with local 350 groups, fracktivists, and environmental justice groups to create change.
Running as a Climate Progressive
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 fair 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, combating police violence, and fighting for net neutrality.
Climate on the stump. 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 on the campaign trail.
Growing our Movements
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 identities like race, gender, class, and sexual orientation will play a role in our endorsement decisions.
Solidarity with our allies. To change everything it takes everyone. We’ll be looking to our progressive allies, frontline partners, labor unions, and other movement leaders for guidance on endorsements.
What does a 350 Action endorsement mean?
Our hope is to focus national attention on some of the strongest climate progressives running in 2018, at the federal, state, and local level.
We like primaries. We think that making endorsements in primaries helps encourage progressive climate leaders to run, and encourages incumbents to stand with us.
Before making an endorsement, 350 Action will review questionnaire responses and consult leaders within the 350 network and allied organizations.
After making an endorsement, 350 Action will encourage our supporters and allies to help climate progressives win their races.
