Together, we can create a healthy climate today.

The world is starting to understand that we must act now to address climate change.

The current Administration:

  • Has pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement.
  • Is dismantling the Clean Power Plan.
  • Is doubling down on building new fossil fuel infrastructure.

We have a short but real window of time to act. We have the knowledge, skills, and much of the technology we need to keep the Earth’s temperature from rising to catastrophic levels.


Join a Local Team!

Our movement is led by our local teams of dedicated volunteers, who determine their community's needs and choose their own goals. We empower them with training, coaching, and ideas to move their communities and states from dirty to clean energy.

Team members come together to learn, strategize, meet with elected and business leaders, testify at hearings, and plan and show up at rallies and other events. At the same time, they add to their team – and their power – by hosting house parties and engaging new people.

Our teams welcome volunteers at all levels - from those who feel called to help build a local team to those who only have time to sign a petition or attend an event. Knowing that it will take everyone to create a sustainable future for all children, we all do what we can.

    Creating Our Path to Power

    Our power depends on our resources and our most important resource is people like you! 

    Mothers Out Front, now seven years old, is in the midst of some structural changes so that we can work together more effectively and achieve bigger wins. This work is continuing, led by committed member leaders, even as we navigate the serious challenges posed by the Corona virus outbreak.

    Join us for this interactive session with mothers and caregivers from across the state. We will:

    • Connect with and inspire one another; 
    • Strengthen understanding of our approach to building power in Mothers Out Front;
    • Review proposed changes in our organizational structure and what they will mean for community teams and statewide campaigns.

    Our time together will begin with optional "community time" from 1-1:30 pm, followed by a 3-hour interactive session, which will include small group discussions and a break. This is a follow-up to the feedback sessions on the proposed structure that took place in early March and an alternative to the in-person assembly that had been planned for April 4. All are welcome to this online gathering, even if you did not attend an earlier feedback session.

    Understanding that this is an incredibly busy and unsettling time for many, this session will offered at another time, TBD, and it will be recorded.

    Showing up for Weymouth, MA

    On February 19th, hundreds of people gathered to raise their voices against the building of the toxic Weymouth Compressor station. Several people from other organizations  took direct action to slow down the work on the site. Mothers Out Front and others in the crowd stood with signs in support. Anne Goodwin, of Mothers Out Front (and Music Out Front), energized everyone through leading chants and songs.

    We know continuing to build out fracked gas infrastructure puts our communities at risk today and our children's health and happiness on the line for tomorrow.
