Several Mothers Out Front from MA were at the State House on November 7th for the Youth Stand-in. Randi’s daughter April gave an amazing speech expressing the urgency of acting now for climate change in the face of worsened natural disasters and melting ice caps. I was inspired by these children—from elementary-aged kids to college students—telling the governor that this is not a future problem, this is a now problem, and we need to act. They asked him to be the first governor to promise no new fossil fuel infrastructure in the state.
My little one was kind of tired….but you can still help with a sign sitting down.
