Who We Are
We are mothers, grandmothers, and caregivers who are united in our belief that we need to act NOW to ensure a healthy, vibrant climate for all children.
We are EDUCATING ourselves and others about the dangers of fossil fuels, we are ENGAGING our friends and neighbors in the campaign to switch our homes and city to clean electricity, we are ENERGIZING our political and community leaders to stand with us as we shift to a cleaner energy future, and we are EFFECTING meaningful change in reducing carbon emissions here in our fair city.
What We Have Accomplished.
In the spring of 2016 we launched our "Raise A Stink" campaign to draw attention to the gas leaks in Cambridge. These gas leaks are harming our climate, killing our trees, and affecting our health.
Here is what we did:
- inspired our City Council to pass a unanimous resolution supporting our campaign
- organized a campaign kick-off at City Hall with local and state officials and media coverage
- tagged all 231 leaks with flags and informational signs
- developed eye-catching campaign materials
- garnered radio, print, and TV media coverage (NPR's "Morning Edition" and "Living on Earth", Channel 5 news)
- modeled a gas leaks campaign that is being replicated across the country
- engaged more than 75 volunteers of all ages in our 2 day tagging event
- joined our voices with our allies to push for statewide legislation on harmful gas leaks
- testified before City Council and the Department of Public Utilities
- turned out scores of active volunteers at events, including gas leaks hearings at Boston City Hall, pipeline hearings and rallies, and statewide actions with allies
Our Current Campaign--Bringing Paris Home
Our federal government may have opted out of the Paris Climate Accords, but we’re still in! Cambridge Mothers Out Front continues our Bringing Paris Home campaign, providing guidance on renewable energy options in Cambridge as well as the most effective ways to cut warming emissions in our homes and daily lives. Our individual contributions are a vital part of addressing climate change!
We are also compiling the results of our actions to show the carbon-cutting impact of our collective efforts, motivating further action. And we’ll be talking about amplifying our individual actions by working for legislative action and policy change.
The next “Bringing Paris Home” house party is coming up in April. You’re invited!
To let us know if you’d like to attend a house party — or to learn about hosting or facilitating a house party of your own — please contact Kristine Jelstrup: email@example.com.
