Green Justice Coalition

Clean Water Action has served since 2008 on the Steering Committee of the Green Justice Coalition (GJC), a partnership between labor and grassroots justice groups across Massachusetts, convened by our good friends at Community Labor United.  Over the years, GJC has won a string of victories by growing the collective people power of community-based organizations, organized labor and environmental justice groups.

Here are some of the highlights:

This puts the Bay State in the top 10 for megawatts of solar installed across the nation—yes, dear Florida, we’re beaming right past you.
