The Campaign for a Clean Energy Future is inviting you to participate in our first big lobby day of the year on TUESDAY June 13th, 2017 at the Statehouse in Boston!  This is a big opportunity to push carbon pricing in Massachusetts. We will meet at the CABA/CXC office at the Old West Church at 131 Cambridge Street in Boston.  We will be looking to identify new supporters in the legislature and mobilize our current supporters to take action in advance of our eventual hearing date.  To accomplish both goals, WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT! <http://www.massclimateaction.org/r?u=https%3A%2F%2Fdocs.google.com%2Fforms%2Fd%2Fe%2F1FAIpQLSc_b9ubGuTezYvarBTYiHYv8dali77WwMzx8TsWKWPTpSReaA%2Fviewform%3Fusp%3Dsf_link&e=9ecdcb834c5d1ff7a30dca892580fa70&utm_source=massclimateaction&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=carbon_pricing1&n=1&test_email=1&e=ed088ce65dcc1bc1521c3264f2c60015&utm_source=massclimateaction&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=carbon_pricing2&n=1>   

One of the best ways to discourage behavior we don’t want is to put a price on it, and studies have shown that pricing carbon would cut our carbon pollution by up to 10%. This legislation would establish a common-sense fee-and-rebate system of carbon pollution fees charged to fossil fuel importers.  The proposals before the legislature would combat climate change, promote green infrastructure, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and create jobs.

To train for the lobby day and set our strategic agenda for the rest of this year,  we'll be hosting our GRASSROOTS SUMMIT on SATURDAY, June 10th (location TBD).   This is a great opportunity to get updated on the basics of the bills and the most recent news, to get to know your fellow carbon pricing activists, and to learn what is coming up in this campaign.  This is going to be the most effective space to prepare for our lobby day and get started on some exciting next step tactics.
