We are excited about our Mothers Out Front group here in Lincoln, Massachusetts.
We are a newly formed and ambitious group of mothers, grandmothers and caregivers ready to take on the many important environmental challenges we face, both locally and globally. We are excited to be joining a powerful grassroots movement to ensure a swift, complete, and just transition away from fossil fuels. Lincoln Mothers Out Front hopes to inspire our town to move toward clean and renewable energy that will support a livable climate for today and future generations.
Some of the main areas of focus our group will have for this spring are the following:
Gas Leaks - We are working to raise awareness of the many natural gas leaks and their impacts on health, safety and climate. We are taking action to encourage the gas companies to fix these leaks in our community. Lincoln has over 45 known natural gas leaks that are leaking potent greenhouse gas (methane) into our soil and air. Natural gas leaks kill trees, are linked to multiple health issues, and we, the consumers, are paying for this leaked gas, not the utilities! We will be kicking off our Gas Leak Awareness project with an ‘artistic’ gas leak tagging event on May 7th.
TAKE ACTION! Lincoln Gas Leaks Tagging and Tree Couture Kickoff!
- Sunday, May 7th at 1:00PM; Lincoln Town Hall, 16 Lincoln Road.
- Every is invited! Meet for a KICKOFF rally, followed by teams of "taggers" dispersing to mark the leaks with Gas Leak Tags and 'Tree Couture' Scarves. We will also place door hangers on neighboring homes to inform our community about the gas leaks. Email lincolnMOF@gmail.com.

Make the Switch - Did you know that your household has the option to purchase all electricity from renewable, clean sources? Click here to make the switch. It is a very simple and affordable way to source clean energy. We are teaming up with Lincoln’s Green Energy Committee to encourage all Lincoln residents to purchase their electricity from renewable sources.
Plastic Bag and Single Use Water Bottle Ban - Lincoln Mothers Out Front is very excited to support the town warrants presented by the students of the LS High School Environment Club. We are very concerned about the ‘throw away’ culture in our town and hope to persuade local businesses, sports teams and schools to choose environmentally sound choices for food and drink.
Summer Concerts with Mass Audubon - Lincoln Mothers Out Front is teaming up with Drumlin Farm for their new and exciting Summer Concert Series. Drumlin Farm is complementing their already strong environmental programming with calls for environmental action! So save the dates- June 23rd, July 14th and August 25th, we will need help with these fun and relaxing events.
