We are the local chapter of 350.org, a global movement to solve the climate crisis. Our campaign focuses on calling for the city of Chicago to divest its pension funds from fossil fuels. We are building this campaign by participating in days of action, monthly working meetings, happy hours, and other fun events like movie nights, tabling at farmer's markets, book discussions, and attending festivals. We would love to have you get connected and feel empowered to work on the climate crisis!
For our October VIRTUAL monthly meeting, we welcome Aaron Hughes, an artist, activist, organizer, teacher, and Iraq War veteran based in Chicago, to share about the intersection between art and climate activism.
Aaron founded Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative, a decentralized network of 29 artists committed to social, environmental, and political engagement. He has also led multiple art builds for climate actions of which 350 Chicago has been a part.
Aaron currently hosts biweekly Banner Build Workshops for the Movement, more info here - https://www.facebook.com/events/1678626252299744/?event_time_id=1678626252299744
We'll additionally offer an update on our efforts at 350 Chicago, including our fossil fuel divestment campaign. We hope to see you there!
This is a great way to connect with other climate activists and find hope and fraternity during this difficult time.
