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.

    Legislative briefing: The health and safety hazards of expanding “natural” gas infrastructure in Massachusetts

    Join Mothers Out Front MA teams at this hearing. Now more than ever we need to change the narrative on fracked gas, and to do that we need voices. 

    More about the hearing:

    1) WHAT – Personal stories and scientific basis of the human health risks of “natural” gas, e.g., cooking with gas is linked to increased childhood asthma.

    Senator Jo Comerford will introduce and moderate the legislative briefing.

    Five presentations:

    • 100 local Massachusetts Boards of Health representing more than 50% of the population of the Commonwealth have expressed concerns about the human health risks of “natural” gas use and infrastructure. Boards have written to Governor Baker asking that Comprehensive Health Impact Assessments be completed before approving new “natural” gas pipelines, compressors, and storage facilities.

    Presented by Madeleine Scammell, DSc, Assoc. Prof. BU Sch Pub Hlth and T. Stephen Jones, MD, Sierra Club

    • A mother will tell her experience caring for her daughter with asthma and her concern about the effects of a gas cooking stove on her daughter’s asthma

    Presented by Ellie Goldberg, Mothers Out Front

    • Pediatrician on how cooking with gas is associated with increased asthma risk, the human health hazards of “natural” gas use & infrastructure and the proposed Weymouth “natural” gas compressor station.

    Presented by Philip Landrigan, MD, Professor, Boston College

    • These “natural” gas health problems illustrate why the proposed “natural” gas compressor in Weymouth should not be built.
