1. Sign our petition to call on Governor Healey to halt new gas system expansions until the state has a concrete plan for a just transition to a clean and green energy future.
Gas is dangerous, polluting and expensive. Using gas to heat our homes and buildings is bad for our health and our climate. Gas companies like Eversource are profiting off of gas infrastructure expansion, putting frontline communities at risk and costing millions to ratepayers statewide. We envision a just and rapid transition away from gas to a future of clean heat powered by clean electricity.
We must stop gas companies from continuing business as usual at the cost of our health, safety, and climate future. This is urgent for our planet and for communities currently facing expansion projects like Springfield and Longmeadow.
2. Lawn signs are available and being posted in Springfield right now to raise public awareness of the pipeline threat. Our dedicated volunteers can bring one and post it in your yard, or you may arrange for pick-up or home delivery at your convenience. If you would like a sign, please fill out our form at this link: https://bit.ly/SpringfieldPipelineLawnSign
We'll be in touch if you request a delivery or pick-up time.
