No matter what happens in Paris, we know what we need: real climate solutions that create secure union jobs and strengthen community power and resiliency. And to get there, we need to build an unstoppable grassroots movement that can unite organized labor, immigrant rights, racial justice and climate justice groups.
It's up to us to lead the way -- and we're starting right here in New England with a massive rally on December 12, the day after the Paris talks end!
When: Saturday, Dec 12, 1-3 pm
Where: Parkman Bandstand, Boston Common, Boston

Spectra Energy has stopped construction on the West Roxbury Lateral pipeline for the winter -- weeks ahead of schedule!
Over the last three weeks, more than 40 people, including many steadfast members of 350 Mass, have been arrested for acts of nonviolent civil disobedience while protesting this pipeline.
It's clear that our movement is making an impact, and when Spectra starts construction again next spring, we'll be back -- bigger and stronger than ever!
