Action Alert:

Tell Governor Baker

Our Children’s Health Is Not For Sale

 

On February 7, we are demanding that Governor Baker and his departments put the children of Massachusetts before his ties to the fracked gas industry. We demand a REAL health impact assessment for the Weymouth compressor station.


WHO: You

WHAT: Join with community leader Andrea Honore and the Fore River Residents Against the Compressor Station to tell Governor Baker that we know about his ties to the gas industry but that he has a stronger tie to the children near the proposed compressor station and throughout Massachusetts

WHEN: February 7, noon to 1:15

WHERE: State House: Nurses Hall at noon; Governor Baker’s office at 12:30.  At 1:15 three contingents will proceed to the the Department of Environmental Protection, and the Department of Public Health

WHY: Because children deserve a healthy, safe, and livable climate


Please join us at the State House and at the DEP and DPH.

Governor Baker’s recent “health impact assessment” for the gas compressor station Enbridge plans to build in Weymouth was a rubber stamp, not a real assessment. It seems as though the governor is more concerned with keeping Enbridge happy than protecting the people of Massachusetts. We demand he protect children and their families before gas executives.

For the sake of the 3,100 children living and going to school near the proposed site, we demand a real health impact assessment.

Governor Baker’s health impact assessment

Governor Baker also promised he would study safety and coastal resiliency before he approved the air quality permit...he did not!

You can make an impact:

Shirt up and show up February 7. Tell Governor Baker that we don’t need any new gas in Massachusetts. We shouldn’t be building new gas infrastructure, especially without the comprehensive study on health and safety that children and families deserve.
