Our Campaigns

Gas LEAKS in Concord

This spring, Mothers Out Front/Concord (in partnership with CCRHS Green Team students) launched its Gas Leaks campaign, formally alerting neighbors and fellow residents to the location and risks associated with 78 gas leaks throughout our community. These leaks endanger humans, the ecology and the planet, and we’re paying the utilities for all the leaking gas!

By aligning our own community’s voice with a statewide campaign -- through education and engagement of residents in multiple cities and towns -- we intend to put pressure on the utilities to do the right thing -- notably, our statewide campaign seeks to to successfully impact two vital pieces of pending State legislation re. Utility accountability. Come learn more & lend your ideas!

 

NET ZERO -- A Real Shot In Concord (if we act quickly)...

Concord recently formed an Energy Futures Task Force, which will take the next six months to explore comprehensive options for expanding our Town’s commitment to a clean energy future. Mothers Out Front/Concord is working to build awareness and support for adoption of Net Zero principles -- as were recently achieved in Lexington and Cambridge, MA, along with many other U.S. cities and towns. Come hear more about how we can, together, successfully reach this exciting potential goal.
