Climate Action Now Monthly Gathering

Climate Action Now Monthly Gathering
Monday, August 28th, 2017

Our monthly gatherings usually start with a presentation and then we split off into several “take action” groups.

Special Presentation: Western Mass Community Energy

–We began as a group of residents working to form a Community Choice Aggregation (CCA) to serve Northampton, Amherst and Pelham. CCA is a wonky name to describe a simple concept: group purchasing of electricity by municipalities.

CCA’s can also develop and implement energy efficiency and local renewable energy projects. Come find out about this project is helping to lead Massachusetts to a fossil fuel free future and discover how you can get involved.

TAKE ACTION GROUPS for August 28th include:

*Climate Change & Nuclear Weapons
* Creating the first ever Climate Justice tent at the Garlic and Arts Festival
* 100% Renewable Energy Campaigns
* Rays the Valley
* Organizing for September 19th Telecommunications, Utilities and * Energy (TUE) Hearing at the State House.�

Feel the warmth of community and the strength of collective action as we move forward together at this critical moment in history.

We are all in this together-everyone is welcome and needed!

We come together once a month to meet each other, plan, and imagine how to contribute, in our corner of the world, to the urgent fight against climate change . Help us organize to protect constitutionally protected conservation land from Kinder Morgan, stop gas leaks statewide and biomass in Springfield, create a clean and renewable energy future in Massachusetts, and figure out how to build up urgency in the public so that we can pressure institutions as a movement. We love to meet newcomers, whether you are brand new to activism or have been doing this a long time. We do not have a membership or dues. People give of their time and talent when they see fit. You are welcome to join us!

Everyone is warmly welcomed!
