350 Action makes endorsements based on the following criteria:

Strong Climate Policy

  • Support for a Green New Deal that creates a just and equitable transition to a fossil-free economy that works for all of us
  • 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

  • Say no to fossil fuel money, as defined by the “No Fossil Fuel Money Pledge.”
  • 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.

What does a 350 Action endorsement mean?

  • Our hope is to focus national attention on some of the strongest climate progressives running in 2020, at the federal, state, and local level.
  • We’ve got our eyes on the 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 spread the word about our endorsements and encourage our supporters and allies to help climate progressives win their races.
  • For our top candidates, we’ll do everything in our power to get them elected. From registering voters, to creative storytelling to knocking on doors to get out the vote, we will work hard to see our champions take their seats in office. 
  • We’ll hold them to their word. 350 Action’s endorsement doesn’t expire on November 4th. We’ll hold our candidates accountable for their promises on the campaign trail so we can usher the policies we need into law.
