The way we currently produce and use energy in the U.S. significantly contributes to the climate crisis and pollutes our water, air and communities. It also disproportionately harms low-income communities and communities of color. Clean Water Action and Clean Water Fund are working to advance solutions that reduce pollution in Massachusetts and make a clean energy future available to all. This includes:
- Growing the green economy--including solar energy, energy efficiency and affordable public transit--and making it accessible to all communities;
- Fighting for a just transition to clean energy while opposing systemic environmental injustices and expansion of polluting fossil fuels;
- Advancing climate resilience projects such as community-controlled clean energy microgrids that help us keep the lights on and stay connected in extreme weather;
- Ensuring a voice for marginalized communities during policy-making that affects them;
- Fighting for a just price on carbon, which will create good jobs, help low-income households, and generate funding to invest at the community level in the transition away from fossil fuels.
