Join us: Rally to Urge Statehouse Action on Climate Bills

May 21 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm


With only 60 days left in the Massachusetts statehouse session, Newton will host one of seven rallies being held across the state on May 21st, calling on legislators to do more for climate justice this legislative session. The rallies are organized by Mass Power Forward, a coalition of over 200 Massachusetts organizations and leaders.

For one hour, beginning at 5:30pm on the Newton Centre Green, local activists will meet to sing, chant, and hear informed and inspiring speakers. The MPF coalition’s Rally message to the statehouse is this: act on critical climate bills now, while there is time to craft good solutions, not rushed compromises.

For three sessions in a row, important bills have been left to the last minute, making it nearly impossible for legislators and the public to engage in a meaningful democratic process. The corporations and utilities benefit from the last minute dash.
