Massachusetts must lead on climate

Climate change is a humanitarian crisis. Rising global temperatures are fueling more frequent and more severe extreme weather events – including droughts, heat waves, flooding, and hurricanes like Harvey, Irma, and Maria. From Bangladesh to Barbuda to Puerto Rico, we see time and time again that it is the poorest who bear the brunt of the devastation.

Despite our new climate reality, President Trump announced his intent to withdraw the US from the Paris climate agreement – turning his back on the world and those most vulnerable to climate impacts.

This is why Massachusetts must step up to continue our proud tradition of addressing climate change and to send a message of hope to the international community.

A new bill creates a voluntary check-off option for all Massachusetts residents to donate a portion of their tax return to the United Nation’s Least Developed Countries Fund (LDCF), a critical fund to help countries most vulnerable to climate change to adapt and protect themselves from the most dangerous effects.

Join us in urging the Massachusetts legislature to do more to support vulnerable communities on the frontlines of climate change.
