Node Meeting Thurs 7/16 Theme: Phone-banking and election activism

Meeting Theme: Phone-banking and election activism
Thursday, July 16, 6:45pm for newcomers, 7pm meeting begins

We’ll begin with a meeting of the MetroWest Node of 350Mass. We’ll check in on the legislative actions we’ve taken since the last meeting, and the additional push needed NOW (more below). We’ll also hear about plans for a direct action from our Climate Courage working group.

Next we’ll hold a meeting of the MetroWest Chapter of 350Mass Action, following up on local candidates seeking our endorsement, and needing our help. We’ll be engaging in a discussion of election support tactics – how do you feel about phone-banking? Do you want to volunteer, but have reservations? Have you tried it, and how did it go? Let’s listen and share, so we can help each other with challenges and get involved.Check out these resources:

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.
