Node Meeting, Thurs 1/9 – Winning in 2020: getting climate bills passed and climate advocates elected

Please join the 350Mass Metrowest Node on Thursday, January 9, at First Parish of Sudbury, 327 Concord Rd, Sudbury MA, at 7:00pm

We can’t solve our climate problems without major legislative changes. Join our Node meeting on January 9 to learn how you can help (1) get good climate bills passed by this summer year and (2) elect better folks to the House in the fall, so we can additional legislation passed next session. We’ll discuss the latest legislative progress and prepare to converge on the Statehouse on January 14 for a climate “Lobby Day”. We’ll discuss what we can do to help a bunch of progressive candidates replace incumbents in the House in the 2020 elections, and to help Senator Ed Markey, our climate hero, keep his seat, despite a primary challenge. We will outline an action plan for the MetroWest chapter of 350 Mass Action, which does the electoral work.

Come with your questions about how direct action works, how it is organized, what are its dilemmas, risks and benefits. Join us and bring a friend! First-time visitors are especially welcome. Come learn, share, vent, discuss, plan and act!

350Mass is a statewide, grassroots, climate action group dedicated to promoting citizen awareness and political action on climate change. Our Metrowest node public meetings usually happen the first Thursday of the month, with locations changing to accommodate learners, supporters, and activists from towns around the region. All are invited to participate in the breakout groups for the local initiatives as well as in the informal planning group that meets on dates prior to the monthly meeting. There will also be a chance for participants to share news and announcements from their organizations and municipalities. Arrive early to mingle. Light refreshments will be available.

Our monthly node meeting location alternates between:
– Peace Lutheran Church, 107 Concord Rd. Wayland MA
– First Parish of Sudbury, 327 Concord Rd, Sudbury MA

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.
