Energy and Climate Team Kick-Off Meeting

We will be holding our first planning meeting next Monday, August 17th from 7-8:30 pm at Cornerstone Co-housing. We will discuss CfSC's efforts to use its grassroots network to promote policies and campaigns that reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. This will be the first follow up meeting to the Town Hall session in June and will set our agenda for the months ahead. Location details will follow shortly.

Agenda Outline
1) Review of June 22nd Meeting and Proposals

2) Discussion of CfSC ad the Nature of Its Organizing on Energy and Climate Issues (should these be reversed?)

3) Discussion of Organizing and Campaign Actions

4) Next Steps and Future Meeting Date


In addition to the planning meeting on August 17th, there are two energy-related events that you might be interested in:

Cambridge-Somerville for Change is an all-volunteer community group dedicated to harnessing the grassroots energy and spirit of change inspired by the Obama campaign. Our organizing work includes electoral and issue-based campaigns at the local, state, and national level. Our members have chosen to work on promoting economic fairness, comprehensive health care reform, creating policies that conserve energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, provide for fair and adequate access to public transportation, and promoting in-state tuition for immigrant youth.

This is an organization built by and for you, the community, and we look forward to your participation and feedback. If you have questions, comments, or suggestions about getting involved, please email
