Mothers across New York state continue to grow and build power. We have new teams forming in Westport, the Hudson Valley, and Irondequoit. Established teams continue to build power in their communities around stopping fossil fuel infrastructure (Bakken Oil Trains and the Dominion New Market Project) and pushing for carbon offsets, home weatherization, and solar power. Read on to see what mothers are up to and opportunities for you to get involved in our movement for a swift, just, and complete transition off of fossil fuels to renewable energy.

In the face of climate change, mothers are an increasingly powerful force in our communities. We are willing to fight for a swift, just, and complete transition off fossil fuels. In NYS, this has resulted in some important wins.
The Wins and Updates!
A WIN in the Adirondacks! The Keene Community Organizing Team (COT) convinced their Town Board to pass a resolution calling for a moratorium on the Bakken Oil Trains. Way to go Keene team!!!!
- And these moms aren't stopping! In the New Year, they plan to connect with mothers and community members in towns along Lake Champlain in order to get more town board resolutions on the Bakken oil trains. Email the ADK Team: ADKmothersoutfront@gmail.com to find out more!
