(ECA’s First Chapter)
Elders Climate Action Massachusetts, the first state chapter of the national ECA organization, was formed in September 2015. We are a group of committed activists determined to do everything we can to combat climate change. We view climate change advocacy as the most essential social movement of our time. We reach out, teach, organize in our communities, advocate for key climate legislation, and build networks with other individuals and organizations that share our commitment.
We urge the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to address three priorities, each of which is supported by bills pending in the current legislative session:
· Develop a Roadmap to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
· Take immediate steps to reduce transportation and building GHG emissions.
· Halt construction of all new fossil fuel infrastructure.
ECA Massachusetts has a collaborative leadership team and specialized teams for action planning, legislative advocacy, research, presentations and education, and social media. We hold monthly chapter meetings and weekly “Deep Dialogue” discussion sessions via Zoom, connecting members from around the state. We keep members posted on climate news and developments, with our chapter events calendar and chapter website, daily updates at our Facebook page, weekly Action Alerts, and a monthly newsletter. We hope you’ll join us!
