to stop the Keystone XL pipeline. The immediate focus is to flood the 
State Department with the voices of citizens expressing their concerns, 
before the public comment period closes in mid April.

Eli Gerzon, leader of 350ma.org's Political Accountability team, will 
give us a "how to" presentation, so BASEA members can quickly and easily 
join this effort. Eli will also provide an insider's view on the process 
of expressing one's concerns to elected representatives, with some 
encouraging anecdotes from his experiences.

Our April Forum will then expand to look at the rapid growth of 350 
Massachusetts, which got its start in late 2012 and has organized around 
several campaigns, namely:

- Solutions (renewable energy, public transportation, cultural awareness)

- Carbon Tax (aligned with Citizens Climate Lobby for a national carbon 
tax)

- No Gas Mass (opposing potential fracking and increased natural gas 
infrastructure)

- Divestment (encouraging institutions and individuals to divest from 
fossil fuel businesses)

- Tar Sands (not just Keystone XL, but also the Northeast/Line 9 
pipeline to Portland, ME)

(Forward on Climate Rally, Feb. 2013. 350 Massachusetts sent 5 buses here!)

The seeds were planted by the global 350.org

and grassroots for a greener future are growing here under the 
leadership of 350 Massachusetts.

"Tonight you voted for action, not politics as usual...But that doesn't 
mean your work is done. The role of citizens in our democracy does not 
end with your vote."

- President Barack Obama's victory speech, 2012
