Seasoned Organizers Fight Pipeline Expansion in Holyoke, Mass.
In Holyoke, Massachusetts, activists are organizing to stop a fracked gas pipeline expansion. Neighbor to Neighbor (N2N), an organization building power to end racism, income inequality and environmental degradation across the state, is working with seasoned activists to stop it.
Community Action Works supported N2N in transitioning the Mt. Tom coal plant in Holyoke to solar energy, and together we are prepared for this next fight. We’re joining with activists who have families impacted by the hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico last year and who know that we must put an end to fracked gas projects to protect our health and climate.
We’ve worked with local leaders across the region to stop fracked gas projects, including a 250-mile pipeline that would have cut through 30 towns in Massachusetts. With Holyoke organizers connected to these local leaders, we know that activists have the power, passion and skills to stop this pipeline.
