350 CT is a project to organize a grassroots coalition of citizens, NGO’s, faith communities, and businesses across the state to envision and build a future beyond fossil fuels, (click here to learn more about the project’s mission). 350 CT is holding a General Assembly on Sunday, August 13, 11 to 6, at the Charter Oak Cultural Center, 21 Charter Oak Ave, Hartford.
The process before, during, and after the Assembly is intended to be as participatorily democratic as possible, to help determine the direction of 350 CT for the next year (at least). Groups and individuals can submit proposals for discussion, debate, and a vote, on policies, for specific campaigns or actions, and with respect to ideals for everyday organizational life in the group (the deadline for proposals is midnight, Aug. 6; click here for proposal guidelines and here for the agenda).
350 CT is also looking for people to join and participate in its committees. These include an Outreach Committee, to build relationships with other organizations; a Media Team; a Tar Sands Working Group; Bridgeport Coal, to shut down the Bridgeport coal power plant; and the Global Warming Solutions Act Committee, to advocate for CT laws to reduce climate change pollution.

There are other committees that are looking for members, including a Legislative Committee, to keep track of bills and suggest actions; a Program Committee, to organize presenters for monthly meetings; a Digital Committee; and a Fundraising Committee. For these committees, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
