On September 9, 70+ environmental organizations, faith and economic justice groups, and clean energy businesses will come together to launch the brand-new Mass Power Forward campaign and call for a just transition to clean energy in Massachusetts. Over the next few years, Massachusetts will spend billions of dollars to replace aging power plants and power lines. We have a choice: we can spend that money on polluting and unnecessary new fossil fuel and nuclear power plants and pipelines, or we can fix existing pipelines, improve efficiency and reduce energy waste, and invest in clean, local energy like wind and solar. The Mass Power Forward campaign has come together to demand the clean energy future that we know we need!
Watch for updates on Twitter and Facebook -- we'll be using the hashtag #MAPowerForward -- or join us in person if you can!
