350 Central Mass is an all-volunteer climate-action organization.
Our home is Central Massachusetts, the heart of the Commonwealth.
We work locally and nationally to end our dependence on fossil fuels
and transition to a just and sustainable future for all.
On Sept. 17 these and other 350 Central Mass members joined some 75,000 other climate activists in Midtown Manhattan, New York, to demand that President Biden and other world leaders quickly pivot away from fossil fuels, which are dangerously heating Earth.

WORCESTER — Climate activists from the group 350 Central Mass protested along Shrewsbury Street Tuesday afternoon in the ongoing fight against Enbridge's Line 3 pipeline carrying crude oil from Canada into the Midwest. The activists said they are renewing calls to the US Army Corps of Engineers to order a federal Environmental Impact Statement. (EIS).
The project, which started a year ago, was completed despite stiff opposition and environmentalists have continued the fight even though the project has been completed. Line 3 starts in Alberta, Canada, and clips a corner of North Dakota before crossing Minnesota en route to Enbridge’s terminal in Superior, Wisconsin.
Then, on Dec. 14, we delivered a letter to Rep. James McGovern at his Worcester office, demanding an EIS for Line 3.
We need YOU to help Fix the Grid!
Fix the Grid is a grassroots campaign in the six Northeast states that aims to accelerate a just transition to a democratic, transparent, and renewable electric grid. The coalition pushes regional energy regulators, including ISO New England, to incentivize clean energy like wind, solar, and storage, instead of keeping us hooked on fossil fuels, which exacerbate the climate emergency and harm our most vulnerable communities. Please lend your support to this crucial campaign! Learn more at fix-the-grid.org.
Massachusetts’ renewable energy contracts with Hydro-Quebec are a direct violation of Indigenous and environmental rights!
On Sept. 29, we welcomed speakers from the frontline communities affected by the Central Maine Power (CMP) Corridor and Canadian Hydropower, and we learned what we can do to help.
This Zoom event was co-hosted by 350 Maine, Maine Youth for Climate Justice, the North American Megadam Resistance Alliance, and Sierra Club Maine Chapter, with support from 350 Central Massachusetts, the Herring Pond Wampanoag Tribe, Renew New England, Sunrise Bates, Sunrise Franklin County, and Sunrise Worcester.

Due to COVID, our meetings are being held on Zoom for now. All are welcome! To join us, contact Janet for details at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Who We Are
In early November, 350 Central Mass held two standouts in Worcester to demand real action on the #climatecrisis at #cop26. On Nov. 5 we were at Lincoln Square and at Park Ave./Highland St. on Nov. 10. In the final days of #cop26, world leaders need to agree on measures to limit global temperature rise to 1.5C. and avoid the worst of the #climatecrisis.
