Who we are
We are mothers and grandmothers in Brookline who are building a powerful grassroots movement to ensure a swift, complete, and just transition away from fossil fuels and toward clean and renewable energy. We need your help. Together, we can create a healthy climate today and a livable future for all children.
What's next: In 2019, we will encourage Brookline residents to opt up to 100% green electricity, roll out the energy efficiency presentation to community groups in town, and work on gas leaks.
What you can do
We organize our work in functional groups - Events, Volunteers, Communications and Data, etc. and meet every 2 weeks to discuss progress of teams and assign roles for things that need to be done. Most of our work is done through email or remotely by Google Hangout.

- Like us on Facebook and Twitter and re-post our messages and attend our events;
Contact our constituents through posts/emails;
Work as a liaison to your school for local activities and events;
Help with publicity for events - distributing flyers, posting to moms' lists;
Connect our team with MOF state-wide - one hour meeting every other week, plus occasional monthly meetings; learn strategies from other teams and relay them back to us on a bi-weekly cal;
Graphic design for event handouts and posters with info provided by state-wide or Brookline team;
- Volunteer at the Brookline high school from 11am-1pm helping the students sort compost from recycling and trash. Contact Deane Coady (her email is her first name + her last name at gmail.com).
