#LetUsBreathe in Massachusetts

February 13, 2020

If you live in Massachusetts, I'm almost 100% certain you or someone you know has asthma. See, our state holds the dubious distinction of being the worst in the Northeast with regards to asthma. The prevalence of asthma in both children and adults—and related deaths—is amongst the highest in the nation.

Getting ready for 2020 in Massachusetts

October 2, 2019

Year after year, election after election, clean water voters make a difference in local, state and national elections by showing up at the polls and voting for candidates who are putting the priorities of our communities first and who are working to protect clean water and act on climate. We did that in 2018 with excellent results in the US House. We need to do that again in 2020.
