By 2020, tar sands oil -- the dirtiest fossil fuel on earth -- could make up a significant portion of Massachusetts' fuel supply. We need to act now to keep tar sands oil out of our state! On Thursday, the state legislature is hearing a bill that would effectively ban tar sands oil by imposing a clean fuels standard. We need as many people there as possible to show that Massachusetts residents don't want tar sands oil in our state! Join us!
WHAT: Legislative Hearing to Keep Tar Sands Out of MA
WHEN: Thu, May 28, 1pm – 2pm
WHERE: Hearing Room A-2, MA State House, 24 Beacon St, Boston
The divestment movement has spread like wildfire over the past few years. But one major voice is still largely absent from the debate: alumni. It's time to change that! Alumni are an immensely powerful force on campuses, and their involvement can make all the difference. If you're an alumnus of a college or university in New England, join us on May 27 for a gathering and discussion about divestment. This is your chance to meet other alumni from your school, learn about ways to get involved, and start taking action!
WHAT: Divestment Gathering for Alumni for New England Schools
WHEN: Wed, May 27, 5:30pm – 8:00pm (food and mingling from 5:30 to 6:00, with presentations and discussion starting at 6:00)
WHERE: First Church Congregational, 11 Garden St, Cambridge
