Monday's #DayAgainstDenial rally on Boston Common drew 250 people—I counted them!—and was an impressive and colorful display of people power. Congratulations to the 350 Mass Cambridge Node and other 350 Mass volunteers who organized this galvanizing moment. With skits, songs, speakers and chanting, the crowd was energized from start to finish.
We can all see and feel the ways our movement has grown, from the website’s 1,200 new volunteer signups and burgeoning node meetings to the sense that anything is possible now that so many are with us. Welcome to everyone who has joined 350 Mass! To both new volunteers and veterans, please join us for a network-wide training on January 28 where volunteer leaders and staff will provide the information, skill-building and resources you need to kick butt on our 2017/18 campaigns.
WHERE: 50 Milk St, Boston, MA, 02109
WHEN: Saturday, January 28, 10 am to 4 pm (RSVP here.)
Trump's climate denial making you crazy? Feeling like it's time to act? Interested in 350 Mass, but not sure where to start? Join us for a training and orientation session.

Since the election, 350 Mass website sign-ups have roughly quadrupled and node meetings have been flooded with new and returning members. Many of us have seen family and friends feeling a newfound urgency to fight for a just and livable world.
If you're new to 350 Mass, this is the perfect moment to get involved. Start by filling out this form (whether you're a new or long-time member!) to update your contact information and share how you are moved to take action. We'll be in touch soon, but in the meantime, please check out our calendar of events -- we'd love to see you at an upcoming node meeting or action.
Most of us have never experienced such a terrifying contrast between our president’s vision for this country and our own. Our local and statewide efforts now take on renewed importance. Over the coming years, we’ll push for stronger action on climate in our state and in our communities. We’ll do everything we can to provide support and stand in solidarity with those threatened by the political reality we face. And we'll work alongside all who share our values to mobilize the millions outraged by Trump to build the kind of political power we need to shape this country's destiny. How? By organizing more boldly and joyfully and beautifully than ever.
