August Newsletter

NH is in drought across the state, our utility bills are set to double this month, and primary elections are on September 13th. This month is crucial in our fight to stop the fossil fuel industry’s greed and win a just transition to renewable energy. We hope you will take action with us by showing up to an event, canvassing with us, or becoming a monthly donor

We launched our coal canvassing program! We are talking to our neighbors about all things coal – why it’s harmful, what we can do to stop it, and how renewable energy can help us get off of harmful fossil fuels. Join us for a canvassing shift on a Thursday afternoon by signing up here

Our team has grown! In case you missed it, we welcomed a new Youth Organizer (Elisabeth), three Electoral Climate Organizers (Sarah, Dominic, and Matthew), and six summer interns (Katie, Yangchen, Sarah, Oishik, Seamus, and Aarika). They have planned some amazing events we hope to see you at this August!

We raised over $1,500 with Cheese Louise! The summer interns spent a day with the team at Cheese Louise to play games and educate people about our campaigns. Thank you to Cheese Louise for featuring 350 New Hampshire for the month of July and supporting our youth organizing team. If you work for a business or group that would like to help us fundraise, check out our business sponsorship opportunities.

TAKE ACTION

Now is a pivotal moment to push the President to take bold climate action. Thus far, Congress and the Administration have focused on ramping up renewable energy – which is good – but now it is time to start shutting down fossil fuels. We are glad that Senator Manchin finally reached a deal in Congress, but we also need President Biden to declare a climate emergency.

An emergency declaration would allow Biden to take drastic action to address the climate crisis. Send a letter to the White House now.
