Massachusetts

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.

    What will happen there?

    This is a gathering for Massachusetts Mothers Out Front to have an inclusive, democratic process toward setting new campaign goals for 2019-2020, and further, to consider adopting a revised organizational structure that will support and guide this new campaign. There will be a presentation of proposals for campaign goals and structure, discussion in small groups, and a consensus-building process. Materials for the Summit are here.

    While the Massachusetts Leadership Team has created the process leading up to this gathering, the voices of the assembled membership will determine the outcomes.

    Juliana v United States Rally #YouthvGov

    For the last three years, 21 brave youth plaintiffs have been suing the federal government for its failure to take action on climate change.  On Monday, October 29th, after years of shuffling and delay, the case goes to trial. All around the country, groups are gathering in solidarity at the federal courthouses to show our support for the brave work of these youth activists.

    Please, join us on Monday, October 29, from 11:30-1pm.  Wear your t-shirt. Bring a sign that says that you understand that climate can't wait, a picture of the children in your life, or a picture of one of the plaintiffs. The hashtag for this event is #YouthVGov. 

    From the organizers:
    "They will demand a science-based National Climate Recovery Plan––a plan that would end the reign of fossil fuels and lead to swift decarbonization."

    Please, tell us that you're coming below. For maps and directions, visit the organizer's site.

    Visit Our Children's Trust website which explains more about the lawsuit and the steps already taken.

    After Dozens of Gas Explosions, a Community Looks for Alternatives to Natural Gas

    Thank you to Phil McKenna from Inside Climate News for this thoughtful analysis of the situation facing nearly 9,000 homes in the Merrimack Valley. Environmental advocates are calling for a "green new deal" that would shift thousands of homes off natural gas and onto electric heating.

    Thinking Bigger, with Help from a River

    Zeyneb Magavi, research director for the energy efficiency and clean energy advocacy group HEET and a member of Mothers Out Front, said the collapse of the gas system in the three communities calls for a bigger, more outside-the-box solution.

    She is proposing a district heating system with an unusual heat source: the Merrimack River, which runs through Lawrence and skirts North Andover.
