As an all volunteer group, we're able to throw your donations directly into our climate justice work. Whether it's keeping our community space going, supporting youth climate strikes, advocating for stronger fossil fuel regulations, or standing in defense of Black lives, we make a dollar go a long way.
December 1 is Giving Tuesday and, if you're able, we hope you'll consider making a donation to 350 Tacoma to power our climate justice movement.
Thanks again to all our volunteers, allies and supporters for making it all possible, for making it all happen.
We hope you're all enjoying today and taking some time to learn the true history of Thanksgiving.
On this Thanksgiving Day, we hope that you and yours are safe, well, clothed, sheltered, and fed. It's been a tough year, but we hope you have reasons for happiness and ways to find purpose and joy in your life. Thank you for being part of the 350 Tacoma community.
Since giving thanks is a major theme for this week, here are some thoughts on gratitude from long-time climate activist Joanna Macy:
"There are hard things to face in our world today, if we want to be of use. Gratitude, when it’s real, offers no blinders. On the contrary, in the face of devastation and tragedy it can ground us, especially when we’re scared. It can hold us steady for the work to be done. . . . Gratitude . . . quiets the frantic mind and brings us back to source. It reconnects us with basic goodness and our personal power. It helps us to be more fully present to our world."
Joanna Macy is a scholar of Buddhism, systems thinking and deep ecology and the root teacher of the Work That Reconnects, a ground-breaking framework for personal and social change that brings a new way of seeing the world as our larger body.
