We encourage all to attend this very important community meeting on Thursday, June 21. This meeting is for the Health Impact Assessment (HIA) that the state was directed to conduct back in July. There will be an overview of what an HIA is and a forum for public input about the HIA and the proposed compressor station. Please RSVP for the event here.
Though Spectra (Enbridge) has not received any of their permits to begin construction, it is important that we prepare ourselves for any of the possible outcomes. Last year, a group called The FANG Collective came to Quincy to give a training on Nonviolent Direct Action (NVDA). Folks who attended the training found it to be very informative and useful so we have asked them to come and do another training. Sign-Up here so that we can plan and prep accordingly

Quincy Climate Action Network (QCAN) will be showing Wasted! The Story of Food Waste at the Thomas Crane Public Library on April 10.

Governor Baker recently filed an Environmental Bond Bill. While the bill has many positive proposal to advance climate adaptation and resiliency, it has a poison bill that leaves the door wide open for subsidizing more fracked gas in our state. This is unacceptable. Join us at the state house for a hearing on the bill to make your voices heard.
