Our mission

β€œWhat can we do today so that tomorrow we can do what we are unable to do today?” – Paulo Freire

Our Mission

MN350 unites Minnesotans with the global movement to end the pollution damaging our climate, speed the transition to clean energy, and create a just and healthy future for all.

Our Vision

We are securing a safe climate through a just transition from an economy based on extraction and consumption to a sustainable and life-affirming economy.

This means that benefits must flow first to marginalized communities that bear the worst effects of climate change. All voices β€” Black, Indigenous, and people of color; immigrant; white; rural and urbanΒ  β€” must be heard in this transition.

Using a full range of peaceful methods, we are building a powerful mass movement to end systems of oppression and realize our vision of climate justice.

Our Approach

With the imagination and dedication of thousands of volunteers and working in coalition with organizations statewide, we are making Minnesota a leader in the transition to a just and livable clean energy economy. MN350 uses a full range of peaceful methods, including policy advocacy, bold public events, political engagement and nonviolent direct action to change the rules of government and corporate behavior. We act with urgency to transform the oppressive systems put in place by polluters and corporate interests, and allow our climate and communities to flourish.

By uniting Minnesotans across race, class and geography and elevating the leadership of frontline communities most affected by climate change, we can win the changes we need for a strong and sustainable Minnesota. MN350 welcomes leaders from all walks of life who are ready to act together to realize profound change that meets the urgency of the climate crisis.
