Be part of Mass Power Forward's Virtual Lobby Day on Thursday March 4th from 3pm-6pm to advocate for a suite of Environmental Justice legislative priorities, 100% Renewable Energy, and the Mass Renews Build Jobs and Justice Act.
DEADLINE TO RSVP is March 1st at 12pm
It’s time to build some momentum behind our environmental justice and climate action legislative priorities. Sign up today here or on Facebook and share with friends, family, colleagues in Mass.
WHY?: New state-wide laws are one of many critical actions we must take to transform our state for climate and environmental justice.
WHAT?: For the new legislative session, Mass Power Forward will be advocating for 3 main groups of bills.
1. First, we are supporting the Environmental Justice Table’s priorities. We will be working to reform the Energy Facility Siting Board, Improve Air Quality for pollution hot spot communities, restore the ability to sue the government for unequal impact and clarify the definitions of environmental justice
2. Second, we are supporting the MA Renews Alliance work to rapidly retrofit homes to be affordable, efficient, electric and climate healing- with priority to environmental justice neighborhoods.
3. Third, we expect to be continuing our work from last session to get Massachusetts to 100% renewable energy.
