350Brooklyn Committees

Our standing committees support each of our campaigns and the ongoing development of 350Brooklyn as an organization.  Standing committees ensure that our vision and our practices are coherent, consistent, and effective.

Media Committee

Contact: Molly Ornati, email

The Media Committee manages our communications: website, newsletter, Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram accounts, and produces press releases, fliers, articles and op-ed pieces.

Goals:

  •  To reach the broadest possible audience throughout Brooklyn
  •  To educate people about the challenges of climate change and about solutions
  •  To provide timely, engaging and informative messages that inspire activism

Legislation Committee

Contact: Ari Lieberman, email

The Legislation Committee keeps 350Brooklyn informed about relevant national, state and local legislation.  We promote policies designed to advance sustainable energy and to protect the environment overall. We take part in coalitions that work to further these goals, including NYRenews.

Goals:

  •  To develop 350Brooklyn’s understanding of the legislative process
  •  To learn how other cities and states have taken action to limit climate change
  •  To develop ongoing relationships with our representatives so that they understand their constituents’ position and to encourage them to become leaders in the fight for climate justice.

350Brooklyn Families

Contact: Ella Ryan and Laurel Tumarkin,

This group offers opportunities for parents and children to come together both to learn about local actions that address climate change and to take action themselves. Meetings and events are scheduled at times when families are likely to be able to attend. Babies and small children welcome! To join the special mailing list and be alerted to meetings and events. email us!

Volunteer Outreach Committee

Contact:  Sara Gronim, email

Members of the Volunteer Outreach Committee do a host of tasks that support the work of 350Brooklyn.  The committee functions as a list-serve: emails requests for help go out on average once or twice a week, and people who are available volunteer for that particular email request.  Requests range from spending 5 minutes calling a legislator to spending an hour at a farmers’ market talking to people about our campaigns to hanging flyers around one’s neighborhood.

Goals:

  • To support the work of 350Brooklyn by carrying out the many tasks that add up to effective action.
  • To give 350Brooklyn members opportunities to help when and how they can.
