FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Work for Climate Justice with the 350VT Board!

 

350Vermont is seeking new Board members to join our lively, committed, and engaged Board of Directors.

 

350Vermont organizes, educates, and supports people in Vermont to work together for climate justice – resisting fossil fuels, building momentum for alternatives, and transforming our communities toward justice and resilience. We recognize that climate change impacts everybody, but that these effects are disproportionately felt by those on the front lines of the climate crisis - communities that have historically been excluded from or oppressed by dominant global power structures.

 

In the past year, 350VT has passed 35 climate solution resolutions, crafted an ambitious 3-year plan, launched a new group in Middlebury, and organized actions, events, and trainings across the state. This year we will continue build on these successes, and continue to build the climate justice movement together.

 

We would like to welcome new Board members who represent a vibrant diversity of experience, background, and thought. In particular, racial, economic, gender, age, and geographic diversity are organizational priorities.

ABOUT 350VERMONT:

350Vermont is a statewide organization in Vermont working to build a grassroots movement to reverse climate change. 350Vermont’s mission is to organize, educate, and support people in Vermont to work together for climate justice – resisting fossil fuels, building momentum for alternatives, and transforming our communities toward justice and resilience. Although we are an affiliated group of 350.org with a similar mission, 350VT is an independent organization, with local campaigns to bring about solutions to climate change, advocate for a carbon pollution tax, and stop any expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure.
