Starts Monday, March 26 at 12:00 noon at the State House in downtown Boston with a procession to the Back Bay, gathering people of all faiths to witness to climate injustice in our state, and to speak truth to Governor Baker. March 26th is during Holy Week and right before Passover and Easter celebrations. Demand that the Governor stop cooperating with fossil fuel interests and do everything in his power to stop the expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure in the Commonwealth.

“We will confront the governor, as Moses confronted Pharaoh, with the realities of climate change and the very real “plagues” that climate change is bringing and will continue to bring…until we break free from fossil fuels and begin to repair our climate for future generations. After an interfaith ceremony at the State House, we will proceed to the Back Bay, where a new pipeline project is slated to power luxury high rises with fracked gas. In the shadow of these modern-day pyramids of wealth inequality, we will witness to the injustice of climate change as well as to Boston’s housing crisis which is putting unbearable stress on working families. Our action will be a living witness to our vision of a beloved community of equality and human dignity, and a life-sustaining society that lives with reverence and care for all life on planet Earth.”

Municipal Sustainability Checklist

We have created a municipal “sustainability checklist” that can help towns compare what they are doing with other towns, as well as get ideas and encourage collaboration. For residents, the checklist helps understand what towns are doing and not doing, as well as set priorities for local advocacy. For organizers, the checklist is an excellent tool to organize local groups around, and to build networks of people who care about sustainability.
