Node Meeting, Thurs 2/20 – Double your fun: a Node meeting and a Chapter meeting

Node Meeting, Thurs 2/20 – Double your fun: a Node meeting and a Chapter meeting

Node meeting: Legislative update and next steps Lots of statehouse news: the Senate passed a very good climate package. In the House, the “Roadmap” bill made it out of committee, and an extension was granted until June 4 for our top-priority bills on carbon pricing and 100% renewables (your calls and emails helped!). We’ll talk about how we can help push for good House action and then getting something great passed by this summer.

Chapter meeting: Markey campaign. On January 23, we re-launched the Metrowest Chapter of 350 Mass Action, the affiliate of 350 Mass that can work for candidates in elections. We identified three main areas of activity for the chapter this year; the first on the calendar is to get delegates elected in Town caucuses to support Senator Markey at the state Democratic convention. On Feb. 20 we’ll focus on progress and next steps on that project. Come help us re-elect our Green New Deal champion! (And please join 350 Mass Action here.)

Please join the 350Mass Metrowest Node on Thursday, Feb 20, 7-9pm, First Parish, 327 Concord Rd., Sudbury

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.
