Massachusetts Power Shift is a world-changing event.
Thousands of citizens from across Massachusetts are coming to Boston to demand action from their elected representatives. Citizens will engage in a weekend full of activities, including workshops on climate organizing, a presentation on how to bring Green Jobs to your communities, community break-out strategy sessions, interest-group break-out strategy sessions and Soul Purpose Live: an afternoon rally complete with music, activism, and leadership. The weekend will culminate on Monday with a lobbying push at the State House to pass the Global Warming Solutions Act which will have Massachusetts reduce its Greenhouse Gas emissions 80% by 2050 and set Massachusetts as a national and global model. We will leave with a comprehensive plan to promote Green Jobs at the municipal level throughout Massachusetts.
The time for action is now. Billions of people around the world, and billions more yet to be born will face untold suffering as a result of our inaction. One engaged American citizen has more power than millions of people beyond our borders. It is not only our right to speak out; it is a responsibility inherent in our privilege as citizens of the most powerful nation in the world.
Our voices matter. Our votes matter. Our politicians work for us. Rise up, speak out, and let your voices be heard! Come to Boston on April 11-14th and help lead our world to a more sustainable future.
