Looking for ways to engage in environmental activism?

 

WRSE has heard from many of you asking for recommendations of ways to get involved more actively with saving our planet now that the former goals of the EPA are in jeopardy and climate change deniers are in charge.

 

Wondering how to get involved to help the planet? Check out these options.

Environmental Voter Project: Hard to believe, but environmentalists do not vote. Politicians listen to voters, and if environmental issues are a low priority for voters, they will be a low priority for policy makers. If you want to get involved, contact EVP today at environmentalvoter.org and volunteer to help reach out to nonvoting environmentalists.

350MA.org: People’s Climate March 2017, April 29: Many local groups are organizing around the Climate March in Washington, DC, on April 29; if you can’t go to DC, Boston will be holding a sister action/march on that date. Stay tuned to WestRoxburySavesEnergy.org for details as they emerge or check Climate Sister Marches.

Local groups:
Boston Climate Action Network: focusing currently on bringing Community Choice Energy to Boston; read more at bostoncan.org.

GreeningRozzie: Community action for a healthy planet.

Mothers Out Front: Mobilizing mothers and others for a livable climate. A local chapter exists in JP; e-mail info.ma.jamaicaplain@mothersoutfront.org or Viki Bok at vikibok@gmail.com.

And of course, WRSE! Contact us if you want to help with the bag ban, CCE, or other initiatives: wrse@WestRoxburySavesEnergy.org.
