This is my last week with 350 Mass, since I've got some big life changes ahead (all good stuff). But don't worry: This newsletter is in the capable hands of my coworkers and volunteers.

It’s been such a pleasure getting to know and work with committed climate activists from across the state. While these times are uncertain, I’ve learned so much about hope during my time at 350 Mass. In moments like these, all we have is each other, and this movement is building a future where we can all thrive, regardless of who we are and where we come from.

Thank you all,
Vignesh Ramachandran
