New York: Tell  Governor Cuomo to Keep his Climate Promises

Here in New York, Governor Cuomo isn’t aligning his energy decisions with the goals of the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act he signed into law.  We at Mothers Out Front are urging you to call Governor Cuomo today and ask him to ensure New York lives up to its commitment to be a true climate leader by stopping new fossil fuel infrastructure..

Governor Cuomo, we ask that you halt the growth of New York State’s fossil fuel infrastructure, including the addition of new pipelines. 

And that you, dis-allow the imminent or scheduled online operation of any pre-approved, in-process, or proposed fracked gas infrastructure operation.  

Call Governor Cuomo at 877-235-6537 

Tweet and Facebook once you’ve called: 

Keep your promises on climate change @NYGovCuomo and halt the growth of New York State’s fossil fuel infrastructure, including the addition of new pipelines @mothersoutfront #BeyondGas #InvestInOurFuture

Massachusetts: Ask your Representive to attend FUTURE Act briefing

Please call your state representative and ask him or her to attend an important briefing on the FUTURE Act. You can find out the phone number for each office here. 

Here's an example of what you can say: 

Hello, I am your constituent from [CITY/TOWN] and a member of Mothers Out Front.

The FUTURE Act (An Act For a Utility Transition to Using Renewable Energy), filed by Representatives Ehrlich and Minicucci and Senator Creem (H.2849 /S.1940).

In the wake of the recent gas leak from a new pipe and evacuations in Lawrence, along with the finding that hundreds of distribution pipes that were replaced there last year remain uncapped,  I am calling today to ask that you and/or an aide attend the briefing on the FUTURE Act on Wednesday, October 23rd at 10 am at the Member's Lounge. The FUTURE Act addresses the neglected gas system’s current challenges and creates a path to a safer renewable energy future.

We will be giving a presentation on the bill, and you will have a chance to ask questions. Donuts and coffee will be provided.

Will you be able to attend?

Corporate Responsiblity: Save the Date for BlackRock on October 29th

We have a Corporate Responsibility team at Mothers Out Front focused on pulling the financial rug out from under the gas industry, including big electric utilities that must go renewable for our children to have a livable, safe, healthy climate. 

One of the biggest investors in Fossil Fuels is the Asset Manager of BlackRock. On October 29th, concerned citizens will be taking action across the world to call out Black Rock’s role in propping up the fossil fuel industry. Please support this action by posting a save the date on social media, so we can bring more moms to protest Black Rock’s Big Problem. 

Twitter and Facebook:

Save the date! On October 29th, moms will be taking action across the world to protest outside of BlackRock, who continues to financially prop up the dirty fossil fuel industry. Join us in Boston, New York, California or on social media. #BeyondGas #BlackRocksBigProblem

New Hampshire: Stop the Granite Bridge Pipeline 

Today Mothers in New Hampshire will attend a Technical Session and testify before the Public Utilities Commission (PUC), asking that they stop the construction of the Granite Bridge Pipeline.  

Can you support our moms by tweeting a comment at the PUC and at Liberty Utility Company? 

Example: 

  • How will Granite Bridge be insured, and who’s providing the insurance coverage? @NHPUC, @LibertyUtil_NH, and @MothersOutFront #BeyondGas #InvestInOurKids
  • According to Liberty’s Annual Reports for 2016, 2017, 2018 they purchased 85.8%, 23.5% and 62.3% more supply than was distributed. How does this happen and how is the cost of that oversupply paid for? @NHPUC, @LibertyUtil_NH, and @MothersOutFront #BeyondGas #InvestInOurKids

Virginia: Help Hampton Roads stop the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline

At its October 17th meeting, the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission will be asked to pass a resolution endorsing the Atlantic Coast Pipeline as necessary and beneficial for Hampton Roads. 

Let the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission members know they should not consider endorsing the costly, unneeded Atlantic Coast Pipeline until they have all the facts.
