MA - Visit from state sparks pipeline protest in Shelburne Falls

With a visit from State Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Matthew Beaton in Shelburne Falls, Mothers Out Front was there to present the Secretary with a copy of “The Lorax” by Dr. Seuss:

"After Beaton finished talking, Felicia Mednick, who is with the environmental group “Mothers Out Front: Mobilizing for a Livable Climate,” gave Beaton a copy of “The Lorax” by Dr. Seuss. The 1960 book is a cautionary tale about the dangers of disrespecting the environment. She said Seuss had been a Massachusetts hero for the environment, and hoped the same was true of Beaton."

MA team meets with Senator Elizabeth Warren

March 27, 2017

Prepared by Renu Bostwick

A Massachusetts Mothers Out Front team had the fabulous opportunity to spend 30 minutes with U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren. A team of 6 prepared stories, thought hard about what we were asking of her, and prepared to listen to what she had to tell us. We asked Senator Warren to indulge us by listening to our stories, which followed with a brief discussion on what was possible in the national conversation surrounding climate change. Climate change and its relation to health rose to the surface as something Senator Warren could start speaking about. She left us with the request to give her more information about how climate change is affecting our collective health.

Here are our stories …


CA - Call out Scott Pruitt on Climate Deception

Linda Hutchins-Knowles, San Jose Mother Out Front:

"While it’s important to call out Pruitt for his climate deception, it is equally important to take action to stabilize our climate. San Jose could take a huge step in the right direction by implementing a Community Choice Energy (CCE) program, as virtually all of the other cities in Silicon Valley have done."
