Wednesday, January 11 at 6 pm, we’ll gather before First Parish Church at the monthly 11th Hour Calling. Now is the eleventh hour for climate action. It is also a time of hope and opportunity to tread more gently, emit less greenhouse gases, draw down and store more carbon, restore our water cycles, and care more for those already adversely affected by climate change, especially in the economically poorest neighborhoods.
Message received, Cambridge resident Mara Healy has established the Office Of Climate Innovation and Resilience Within the Office Of the Governor and appointed Melissa Hoffer as Massachusetts’ Climate Chief to serve on the Governor’s Cabinet. Massachusetts is the first state in the nation to establish such a position at the cabinet level. It’s a new day (cue Mikis Theodorakis and O Adonis) with Executive Order No. 604 and we’ve got work to do.
The Boston Area Brigade of Activist Musicians (BABAM) will strike up the music and play in front of First Parish Church. There will be signs to hold up to passing cars as we sing for climate justice.
