350 Central Mass is an all-volunteer climate-action organization.

Our home is Central Massachusetts, the heart of the Commonwealth. 

We work locally to build the grassroots movement to fight the climate crisis and transition to a just and sustainable future. 

Join 350 Central Mass and other local climate-action advocates for a public rally to demand that banks stop funding the Line 3 Pipeline/Dakota Access Pipeline. https://www.stopline3.org/ March 26, 4-5:30 PM at TD Bank, 295 Park Ave., Worcester. TD Bank is a major source of financial backing of these destructive pipeline projects. Rain date Tuesday, March 30, 4-5:30 PM. At this event, 350 Central Mass will join with other local climate-action groups to demand that big banks stop funding the construction of polluting fossil fuel infrastructure on public and indigenous lands. We also demand that Pres. Biden leads a national campaign to build back better by building back fossil free and revoking permits for the bank-funded projects in question, as he did with the Keystone XL pipeline. Questions? Contact Janet at janetqcason@verizon.net

Our Priorities

March 26 was an historic day for climate action in the Commonwealth: Governor Baker signed the Roadmap Bill into statute!

This is the first piece of climate legislation passed in Massachusetts in over a decade. This bill creates the foundation for bold and robust statewide climate policy for years to come. This win would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of local activists like you.

Over the course of the 2019-2020 legislative session, advocates organized in communities across the Commonwealth to tell our decision-makers that we need bold, progressive, statewide action to effectively combat the climate crisis. 350 Central Mass was very active in this effort. Thank you for your efforts to get this bill over the finish line, and onto the Governor’s desk!

We are especially excited to share that the Roadmap Bill will:

  • Codify the definition of Environmental Justice, including the impacts of climate change in the bill's definition of "environmental burden.”

  • Strengthen Massachusetts’s emissions reductions targets to establish a 50% reduction by 2030 and a 75% emissions reduction goal by 2040.  These targets hold the Commonwealth accountable to its residents for reducing emissions in our building and transportation sectors in years to come.

  • Direct the Department of Energy Resources to develop a Net Zero stretch code that cities and towns will have the option to adopt by 2022.

We know that our work is far from over. However, today we are better positioned than ever to keep mobilizing for stronger protections for Environmental Justice communities, a rapid transition off of polluting sources of energy, and an efficiency-based Net Zero building code that ALL communities adopt.

Banking on Climate Chaos

In the 5 years since the Paris Agreement, the world’s 60 biggest banks have financed fossil fuels to the tune of $3.8 trillion. Runaway funding for fossil fuel extraction and infrastructure fuels climate chaos and threatens the lives and livelihoods of millions.
