We are Cambridge mothers, grandmothers, and others working together to ensure a livable climate and sustainable future for the generations ahead of us. Along the way, we’re building community, forging partnerships, and empowering ourselves and one another.
We are fueled by a sense of urgency and by the fierce force of mother love. We’ve found that together we can stand up, speak out, and join hands to work for a renewable energy future.

Our Current Campaigns
⬆OPT UP . . . to 100% Green Electricity
By opting up to 100% Green Plus, Cambridge residents increase the amount of renewable energy in the city’s supplies andhelp build local solar arrays. We’re working to increase participation in this innovative program provided by the city.
To learn more and opt up, have your electric bill on hand and go to https://masspowerchoice.com/cambridge/100-green
⬆ZIP UP . . . Your Home with a Free Energy Assessment
Making our homes more energy-efficient is a key way to reduce our carbon footprint. We’re working to inform people about free home energy assessments: what they are and how to get them
You can sign up for a free home energy assessment—and generate a donation to Mothers Out Front!—at www.homeworksenergy.com/partners/MOF
⬆GREEN UP . . . Cambridge Roofs with Gardens and Solar Arrays
Cities like Toronto are taking the lead on greening urban rooftops. We’re working with the City Council to craft and pass an ordinance requiring rooftop gardens and/or solar panels on any new construction.
What We’ve Done So Far
- Since 2015, we’ve been working closely with the city to “green our grid,” increasing the amount of renewable sources providing our electricity. In June 2017, the city launched Cambridge_Community_Electricity, which automatically provides about 14% local green electricity to businesses and households, with the option for customers to opt up to 100% green.
- In 2016, we launched a Cambridge_Gas_Leaks, working with the Cambridge Department of Public Works and Eversource on an innovative project to identify and fix gas leaks.
- Our 2018 Bringing Paris Home campaign was our response to the national decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accords. We’ve been partnering with Green Cambridge, 350-Mass, and Neighborhood Solar to promote the 100% opt-up electricity program and to publicize free home energy assessments and opportunities for rooftop solar.
- We’ve spread the word and made connections by hosting house parties, tabling at community events, speaking at community gatherings, canvassing door to door, and holding community meetings. We’ve spoken at city council meetings, met with city officials, written letters, and made phone calls.
