We need your help!

We know that your inbox is full of fundraising appeals and we hate to add to your list of requests but we need your help. We recently found out that the DEP’s presiding officer ruled in favor of MassDEP and Spectra (Enbridge) in the first part of our Waterways appeal. Though we are disappointed by the decision, we are prepared to move forward with the rest of the appeal and, if necessary, to bring the DEP into Superior Court. Our attorneys feel that we have a very good case should the DEP fail us on this appeal. Can you donate $5, $10, $20 or $100 to help with legal costs?

The background for the climate change arguments are spelled out in a recent Friend of the Court brief by 6 AG's, including MA's Attorney General Maura Healey, in another case in NY state against FERC and Dominion. See attached amicus brief.

Pet Blessing in the Park - Photos

What a beautiful day it was today, We had a pet blessing celebration in the public park that is located next to the proposed compressor station site - a space that will be lost if the compressor station is built. Many thanks to the Reverends Gretchen Elmendorf and Betsy Sowers for their service. ❤️

So many new furry and feathery Friends of FRRACS were on hand! We hope that many more will come and to walk with their companions in this beautiful park.
