Hamilton 350 is building an engaged local movement for bold action on the climate emergency

Municipal Election

24 October 2022

With the provincial election having come and gone, we’re starting to mobilize for October’s municipal elections. We have the opportunity to elect a number of progressive, environmentally friendly councillors in an attempt to stem at a local level some of the damage that will be inflicted on the environment by the Ford government.

15 Jun: Local activist Craig Cassar has announced that he will be running against Lloyd Ferguson in Ward 12 (Ancaster). Watch Craig’s interview with Laura Babcock on The OShow.

Hamilton 350 is a grassroots group based in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, and affiliated with the world-wide 350.org network. Our mission is to build an engaged, aware local movement for urgent action and advocacy on the climate emergency that all of us face.

Hamilton 350 is committed to supporting Indigenous self-determination, incorporating anti-racism and anti-oppression into our work, and continuously educating ourselves and each other. Everyone is welcome in Hamilton 350, including marginalized peoples and students/young people, who are likely to bear more of the brunt of climate change.

We acknowledge that we are on the traditional lands of the Erie, Neutral, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee, and Mississauga peoples, which are governed by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Agreement and are covered by the Great Lakes Purchase of 1792.

Hamilton 350 is built on the efforts of volunteers

We need you and your energy, whether it’s for ongoing work in our sub-groups or for one-off actions and events.

There are costs associated with organizing and holding events, getting the word out, providing honoraria for speakers and performers, hosting this website, and much more.
