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.

    A First for Somerville: Gas main replaced during winter moratorium!

    With Mothers Out Front Somerville leading the way, a historical decision was made to emphasize repairing gas leaks!

    For the first time in the City's history, Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone and the Department of Infrastructure and Asset Management (IAM) have allowed National Grid to replace a gas main during the City's winter moratorium to expedite efforts to eradicate gas leaks in Somerville.

    On January 13, National Grid began work to replace a century-old gas main on the eastern half of Pearl St. and Myrtle St. in East Somerville. Due to its age, the Pearl St. gas main is prone to leaks and had been identified as a priority for replacement by local officials as well as partners including the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, Mothers Out Front, and other community advocates.

    Large gas leaks have been shown to accelerate climate change and compromise local environmental conditions. In his January 6 inaugural speech, Mayor Curtatone underscored the need for urgent action, citing efforts to reduce gas leaks as a priority for 2020 and commending the persistent leadership and advocacy of Mothers Out Front on this issue.
