MN350 works to build the climate movement in Minnesota through creative local, state, and national campaigns, grassroots organizing, and mass mobilizations in order to keep fossil fuels in the ground and accelerate a just transition to renewable energy.
In 2011, community members in the Twin Cities formed MN350 to call for large-scale, community-led climate action through a lens of urgency, justice and possibility to confront the climate crisis in Minnesota. Today, we are running innovative, relational campaigns, and creating opportunities for individuals to form groups of their own to:
- act to resist continued damage to the Earth and all beings
- support new models of living and generating energy as we replace our dependence on fossil fuels
- inspire deep personal and communal changes to shift the collective consciousness of our society
- build the power of the movement through heart-led climate communication, conversations and stories of justice

Shut Down Line 3, Don't Replace It!Canadian pipeline company Enbridge is trying to build a new Keystone XL-sized pipeline to carry tar sands oil through North Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. This project -- which the company is billing as a “replacement” of an old and unsafe line -- just got a boost from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as part of a proposed settlement relating to a massive tar sands oil spill in Michigan that the company was responsible for a few years ago. In effect, the EPA is “punishing” Enbridge for a devastating spill by requiring the company to build an entirely different pipeline that Enbridge has wanted for years. Ordering a bad actor like Enbridge to build a new tar sands pipeline is a recipe for disaster for our climate. The EPA is currently accepting public comments on this decision. Submit a public comment and tell the EPA that operating an unsafe pipeline isn’t something to reward.683 of 800 SignaturesCreated by Andy Pearson
