It’s our birthday! 350 Salem OR was founded by a loose network of local activists in 2014. Our mission is to build an inclusive grassroots movement focused on keeping fossil fuels in the ground, advocating for a just transition to a renewable energy economy, protecting our last old growth forests, and supporting community-based resilience in response to the climate emergency. Protecting the stability of our climate is the most urgent task our world faces. LEARN MORE

Phil Carver, Laurie Dougherty and Ray Quisenberry talk about the history, accomplishments and hopes for Salem’s climate future on our 350 Salem OR radio program, The Elephant in the Room.

The coming years are often referred to as our last chance to get on track to co-existing with our planet. Many activists and scientists warn there is even less time remaining. Every day and every degree matters in direct proportion to suffering and survival.

Our parent group, 350.org, has been central in the fight for a stable climate. Outgoing 350.org Co-founder and Executive Director May Boeve reflects what she has learned about strategy, mobilization, climate justice and activism. Her insights bear on current and future organizing — from intergenerational solidarity to the double-edged role of technology to the nitty gritty of behind-the-scenes work.

“Fifty years from now people will likely look back on this era through the lens of having seen catastrophic climate changes that we cannot even imagine. Our legacy will depend on the level of moral courage we display in this difficult challenge.”

350 Salem OR Co-coordinator Phil Carver
