Climate change is unrelenting. But so are we.

Last Friday, we gathered in Boston—and in cities across the US—to keep up the pressure. We marched for our future and the future of the people we love.

This is an unprecedented moment in the climate struggle. Don't miss out! If you're new to the movement, take a look at the 350 Mass Node meetings on the right and find a group near you. Show up, make friends, and make your voice heard.

In solidarity,

** December 6 Boston Climate Strike A Success

On Dec 6 we met at Copley Square and marched to the State House to support students striking for a livable future. Similar strikes took place all around the US. It was a powerful day. Thanks to everyone who joined us to demand climate justice for all.
