350 Salem is forming Work Teams to carry out activities. As smaller groups interested in particular issues, work teams will hold in-depth discussions, develop strategies, and carry out activities. These teams will self-organize, setting their own meetings and agendas. Teams will report in monthly HUB meetings and can request support for activities from the group as a whole.
The CITY FOCUS Work Team is up and running. It will carry out analysis and advocacy around the ongoing Salem Climate Action Plan, the upcoming Salem Transportation System Plan revision, and other climate-related city initiatives. This team meets the last Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m.
If there is interest, we’ll form a STUDY GROUP and a RAPID RESPONSE TEAM.
Based on issues of concern to 350 Salem OR members, if leadership emerges, there could be Work Teams focused on forests, climate and militarism, state legislation and agency activities, or other topics.
This is your opportunity to join, or even lead, a Work Team!
Let us know if you are interested in any becoming involved with any of these issues or if you have other suggestions, and what role you would like to play. Email Coordinators@350salemor.org, with “Work Teams” in the Subject line.
Each quarter we plan to hold a public forum. Is there a topic you would like to learn more about? Is there a topic about which you or someone you know has expertise? Email Coordinators@350salemor.org, with “Public Forum” in the Subject line.
