Newton, MA: Gas Leak Stand Up & Stand Out!
Stand out with Mothers Out Front Newton to highlight one of our community’s largest gas leaks! Newton has over 700 active, un-repaired gas leaks leaking gas into our neighborhoods. Over 50 of these leaks are classified “significant environmental impact” (SEI) leaks, because they continuously release large quantities of methane into the atmosphere.
We will be standing out at an SEI leak measuring over 10,000 sq ft in size, located right in Newton Center! We are standing up to National Grid, our local gas utility provider, to ask for real climate solutions now. No more greenwashing, no more delay. Fix the big leaks, and plan a transition to clean, safe, renewable, affordable heat.
Stand with us! Bring a sign. We will also be asking participants to write a postcard to National Grid demanding Clean Heat Now (materials & instructions will be provided)! Don’t know what to write on your sign? Here are some ideas:
- FIX BIG LEAKS
- GAS IS THE PAST
- INVEST IN THE FUTURE
- CLEAN HEAT NOW
- PLAN A JUST TRANSITION
