Boston Climate Action Network has been organizing since the early 2000s. We’re members of Mass Climate Action Network, the Green Justice Coalition, and Mass Power Forward. We helped convene the first and second “Step It Up” rallies in Boston in 2007, leading up to the founding of 350.org. We have partnered with ACORN to lead energy efficiency and climate change classes in Dorchester and Mattapan, and to train working-class African Americans and Latinos to lead classes. We have assisted the City of Boston with energy efficiency outreach through door-to-door outreach for Renew Boston. We have partnered with HEET to lead energy efficiency skill-building workshops called “barnraisings,” in both English-speaking and Spanish-speaking homes. In 2010 and 2011 we were instrumental to the public process that resulted in the City of Boston’s first climate action plan, and remained active in the process of the 2014 expanded plan. We’ve been working to stop methane leaks from gas pipelines under our streets since 2013, and in 2016 are beginning work to expand access to renewable energy for all Boston residents.
