Climate Justice requires Racial Justice and More Equity
On Friday, March 11 at 6 pm, holding climate justice signs we’ll gather on the steps of First Parish Church at the monthly 11th Hour Calling. Now is the eleventh hour for action. It is also a time of hope and opportunity to tread more gently, emit less greenhouse gases, draw down and store more greenhouse gases, restore our water cycles, and care more for those already adversely affected by climate change, especially in the economically poorest neighborhoods.
We call on Beacon Hill to pass the 100% Clean Energy Act (H.3288/s.2136). We call on the candidates for governor to commit to (1.) require 50% of climate spending directly benefit environmental justice communities; (2.) undertake restructuring to reform utilities & modernize the grid; and (3.) to maximize the economic benefits increase funding of the Massachusetts Clean Energy Council.
The church bell will toll for eleven minutes. The Boston Area Brigade of Activist Musicians (BABAM) will strike up the band and play in front of First Parish Church.
