311 Puyallup Avenue
Our community space at 311 Puyallup Avenue opened up so many avenues for our little group and was the hub of our activities. Then COVID-19 hit in March.
Black Lives Matter
At 350 Tacoma we understand that climate justice is racial justice. We are grateful for the clear leadership and guidance from the Black leadership at 350.org.
As always, we continued our fight against fossil fuels in Tacoma by supporting
- SAMI High School students Adriel and Gemma in their March Against LNG, the Puget Sound Energy fracked gas project;
- WA Youth for Climate Justice in holding a Climate Strike at City Hall and Wright park;
- Rallying people to testify for stronger interim regulations at Tacoma City Council meetings;
- Mobilizing against Seaport Sound Terminal expansion permits, and
- Our neighbors in Kalama fighting the same methanol monster that Tacoma vanquished.
A huge thank you to our donors, volunteers, funders, and all those who contributed in so many ways over the past year, including Stand Up to Oil (Communities Fueling Change) and Power Past Fracked Gas.
350 Tacoma hosted a special workshop and public reading on transforming hate in collaboration with Creative Colloquy and the Arts Bridging Communities Initiative.
