In the aftermath of the election, we wanted to reach out to you — our Wellesley neighbors — who share our deep concern for the environment and our planet.
The election outcome has sent our country into uncharted waters. For the first time, we will have a president who considers climate change to be a matter of belief, rather than science. In this new era of uncertainty, it will be up to local communities such as ours to continue to promote actions and decisions that will protect our planet. We will need to organize as never before.
In the meantime, we invite you to share your thoughts with us about how you are feeling and processing the events of this week. We are here for you and we are listening. Our email address is: info@sustainablewellesley.

At this event — part service, part forum, part rally — folks will gather to learn
