MCAN

We are facing the final two weeks of an unusual session for the Massachusetts statehouse. While we are unable to do in-person lobbying, advocates like you have been keeping up the virtual fight for the comprehensive climate solutions that our Commonwealth needs. We  know that COVID relief, job creation, and meaningful climate action go hand in hand. Join us by contacting your Representative and posting on social media to advocate for climate legislation today!

1. Roadmap Bill (H.3983)

The Roadmap Bill updates our statewide climate goals so that Massachusetts is on track to reach Net Zero by 2050. This bill would include Municipal Light Plants in clean energy regulations they are currently exempt from: a major win for Muni advocates across MA. We are also pushing for an amendment to the Roadmap Bill that would update our stretch code to a Net Zero standard, allowing communities to require Net Zero buildings NOW.

2. 100% Renewables Bill (H.2836)

The 100% Renewables Bill is the most aggressive path to a future powered by clean electricity by 2035 and clean energy by 2045. This legislation would also establish a Clean Energy Workforce Development Fund to ensure a just COVID recovery for our health, economy, and climate. Urge your Representative to be a #100PercentHero today!

3. Environmental Justice Bill (H.4264)

Black, Indigenous, People of Color, and low-income individuals are disproportionately burdened with climate change-causing pollution. The COVID pandemic has made it clear that the same communities that have been hit hardest by healthcare and economic disparities are also facing the worst effects of the climate crisis. Now is our chance to take action and ensure that our decision-makers prioritize the needs of environmental justice communities.

Recruit your legislator to attend an Environmental Justice Briefing this Friday, July 24th. 

By calling, emailing, and tweeting at your Representative today, you are keeping up the fight for the resilient, renewable, and equitable future that we all deserve.

Find your legislators’ contact information here, scripts in support of each of these bills here, and sample social media posts here. You can find more information on all of MCAN’s legislative priorities here.

Thank you for joining us in taking action today. Please be in touch with any questions!

Best wishes,

Sarah Dooling
