Our Current Campaigns
2023-2024 - Make Polluters Pay + Emissions Free Buildings
Following our two year campaign, Bring the Green New Deal Home, which focused on retrofitting homes, greening our grid, and winning the Fair Share Amendment, we are now focusing on two priority campaigns: Make Polluters Pay and Emissions Free Buildings. We are in the process of shaping these campaigns, so look out for actions and updates to come.
Make Polluters Pay
Make Polluters Pay is a campaign supporting legislation that will create a climate superfund, penalizing the worst polluters of greenhouse gasses, and funding resilience and adaptation projects in communities most impacted by climate change. 350 Mass joins Better Future Project and other groups like Communities Responding to Extreme Weather (CREW), Mass Youth Climate Coalition (MYCC), and Mass Power Forward – with more partners on the way – to drive a grassroots campaign to hold polluters accountable. The fund will raise an estimated $75 billion over 25 years from the largest polluting companies. This influx of funds will enable the commonwealth to prepare for the coming climate impacts, guided by the vision of the communities with most at stake.
This campaign is part of a national push to Make Polluters Pay, as we are campaigning alongside political leaders and activists in Vermont, Maryland, and New York.

Emissions Free Buildings
The Emissions Free Buildings campaign will advocate for bold legislation and executive action on buildings. This can include requiring that new buildings be efficient and non-emitting, updating Massachusetts existing building science and retrofit programs, and supporting town-level sustainability efforts that involve buildings. We know that reducing building emissions is a priority of our legislature and of Governor Maura Healey, so we will craft strategies that push these decisions makers to act and hold them to a high standard when it comes to environmental impact and justice. Emissions reduction in buildings must prioritize low income housing, environmental justice communities, the disability community, renters, and other. The work of retrofitting and new construction must go to unionized workers. Look out for events and planning sessions open to all!
