Together we can help build a super-charged global climate movement at the local level by engaging with our local Sacramento area community members and organizations.

WHAT'S 350 PPM?

Bike with a 350 Sacramento license plate attached350 is the number that leading scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. Scientists measure carbon dioxide in “parts per million” (ppm), so 350 ppm is the number humanity needs to get below as soon as possible to avoid runaway climate change.

We reached 400 ppm in 2013. Only three years later in 2016, scientists said we may never return to levels below 400 ppm. While the situation is more urgent than ever, together we can create solutions to reduce the impacts of climate change for current and future generations.

CULTURE

350 Sacramento volunteers smiling and holding power tools and Stop Oil Train signsAlong with awareness and action, 350 Sacramento values openness, honesty, respect, and fun.

We speak when we need to speak, and listen when others need to be heard. There's always something new to learn and and an old lesson to remember.

And no lie, climate activism can be rough, but that's why we like to play and have fun with the work we do. We can look at climate change as an opportunity to improve the planet we depend on, and support each other in our shared mission.

At the time I recognized climate change as the biggest challenge to the future, worrying for my children and grandchildren, I saw that there was no group working on climate change in Sacramento. With Martha Turner, I reached out to numerous groups and individuals for the Global Work Party on October 10, 2010. From that arose 350 Sacramento.

Edward Abbey once said “sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.” I discovered 350 Sacramento from a link off the 350.org website and have been involved ever since. My involvement with 350 Sacramento has not only provided me a meaningful way of taking action against climate change, it allowed me to get to know some amazing people.

Kristi Perry

Treasurer |
In 2010, I had been increasingly concerned about climate change. When I heard about the 10/10/10 global day of action, I knew I wanted to be involved! I met with the 2 founding members of 350 Sacramento and have been involved ever since. I oversee the finances and am passionate about sustainability and carbon footprint reduction.

I became a volunteer with 350 Sacramento in January 2017. I had been concerned about the air quality in the Sacramento region for many years, so after the 2016 election, I decided to get involved. I don’t have a background in environmental science, so the learning curve has been a steep one for me. As I continue to learn and work alongside the other dedicated volunteers, I’ve found there’s a place for each of us to do whatever we can to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Sacramento.

My educational background is in microbiology, and I am a science and nature lover. So saving our precious Earth from climate change is why I get up in the morning. It is awareness of the awesome improbability of life evolving in the first place that keeps me going.

I'm a recently barred attorney with a background in environmental and Water Law, especially with an interest in tribal rights and environmental justice. I joined 350 recently because I want to be more directly involved in advocating for better climate policy.
