Emergency Climate Rally!

July 19, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm UTC+0

As the legislative session rapidly draws to a close, time is running out to take action to support climate policy. We are all witnessing the catastrophic effects of climate change all around us – most notably with the heat waves that ravaged the country last month, and we know that the impacts of climate change are only getting worse. And guess what? The House rejected ALL the amendments that aligned with our priorities, and instead supported a regressive policy agenda that does not safeguard our climate.

It is time for us to take bold action.

1) Rally and Call Thursday, July 19th

We’re asking you to join us on Thursday, July 19th at the State House for an Emergency Climate Rally to demonstrate the need for the Mass House to act on climate now!

Can we count on you to show your support for the climate policies we need by attending our emergency rally?

2) Share who you’re fighting for!

We’re asking everyone who comes to bring FIVE copies of a picture of who they are fighting for. This could be a picture of a child, grandchild, niece, nephew, cousin, or sibling, or friend. Please write on the back of the photo why you care for this person, and why climate change concerns you.

If you can’t make it on Thursday, please send a picture of who you are fighting for to your rep and post it to social media. We’ll have more details about this ask early next week.

3) Call Your Rep

If you cannot make it to the rally, it’s more integral than ever to call your representative and ask them to take impactful climate action. Make sure to call your representative on Thursday, 7/19 and we will follow up with a call script. Please also consider sending a copy of that photo to your rep over social media and use the hashtag

Let’s flood the phones and the floor of the Massachusetts Statehouse to show the urgency of immediate climate action in our state policy!
