We are Cambridge mothers, grandmothers, and others working together to ensure a livable climate and sustainable future for the generations ahead of us. Along the way, we are building community, forging partnerships, and empowering ourselves and one another.
We are fueled by a sense of urgency and by the fierce force of mother love. We’ve found that together we can stand up, speak out, and join hands to work for a renewable energy future.
This summer, we are listening to a diverse range of Cambridge residents to learn what concerns they have about climate change and the environment. Please tell us what issues are top priority for you and your family, so our next project can reflect our shared community values.
WE DID IT! More than two years ago, attendees at a community meeting of the Cambridge Chapter of Mothers Out Front dared to envision what their city could be if its rooftops were green. The moms understood that carbon emissions from buildings worsen the effects of climate change and that vegetation on roofs offer a wide range of benefits. A task force was created to take a revised Green Roofs ordinance through the city’s process that requires vegetative or biosolar –solar panels and vegetation combined – on rooftops. On May 3, 2021, six city councilors favorably supported pollinator-friendly meadows and biosolar roofing solutions for some roofs of 25,000+ sf.
