Take Action

Volunteers are needed and appreciated.

Climate change represents the biggest challenge to the future of humanity and the life-support systems that make our world habitable. Join us in positive, effective grassroots planning and organizing. It will take all of us to ensure the livability and sustainability of our planet.

  • Do you have a particular passion as far as climate action? Now you can join or even lead a 350 Salem OR Work Team to focus on what you most care about. Work teams will hold in-depth discussions, develop strategies, carry out activities, and report back to the larger group. Learn more.
  • Volunteer members can also contribute in other ways, including:

Letter Writing Campaigns: Write letters to local and state political leaders and the media, voicing support for effective climate action.  

Partnership Development: Develop and cultivate partnerships with other organizations, including spiritual communities, clubs and social justice organizations. We find strength together.

Outreach: Talk with people at local events, explain our cause, tell them how they can make a difference, and encourage them to join our events or meetings.

Do public demonstrations make a difference? My response is a resounding YES! We come away empowered and, even though it may not seem like it at the time, we influence those around us. I believe that the women’s vote, Indian independence, U.S. civil rights protections, the end of the Vietnam war, and South African apartheid would never have come about as they did without people getting out into the streets. It was the unrelenting accumulation of events, day after day, week after week, month after month, that changed the established order.

It is not the average citizen, caught up in the minutia of daily life, who determines the course of our future. It is those of us who pay attention, who speak out, and who are willing to be uncomfortable—perhaps even risk arrest—that drive change forward.
