Join 350Mass and friends on Monday, May 3 from 7-8:30pm for a webinar on the recent research report by Brown University’s Climate Social Science Network, “Who’s Delaying Climate Action in Massachusetts? Twelve Findings.” Learn how behind-the-scenes lobbying keeps strong climate legislation, supported by a 90% majority of testimony, from emerging out of committee to receive its day in the sun on the State House floor. Report co-authors Trevor Cuhane, Galen Hall, and J. Timmons Roberts will share their findings, and MA Representative Mike Connolly will talk about what it’s like to legislate among the lobbyists. Then it will be time for topical breakout discussions to strategize about how to change this situation.
Co-sponsors to this event are 350Mass, 350 Central Mass, Act on Mass, Elders Climate Action, MCAN, Mothers Out Front, Newton EV Task force, Sunrise Boston, Swamscott Democrats, and UU Mass Action.
