In the interim Massachusetts Clean Energy and Climate Plan (CECP) on page 29, https://www.mass.gov/doc/interim-clean-energy-and-climate-plan-for-2030-december-30-2020/download it commits to converting 1million households from fossil fuels. About 2/3 of Mass is served by gas utilities, how about heating oil?
SueSwanson
56:55
Excellent presentation. Thank-you!
Ann Boland
57:20
Great presentation
Sue Stafford
57:42
Do you have plans for using this campaign to develop new chapters in new cities and towns?
Ali@e Trexler
58:01
Will you give several examples of”quick 30 minute actions?”
Viki Bok
58:33
Nice job, folks! One concern -- there are lots of different priorities that fall within this campaign. How do we prioritize? And who is the main campaign target, if there is one?
Sarah Simon Ipswich
58:43
are we targetting indoor air quality? or are we targeting the Department of Environmental Protection, who is currently improving their state network
Jen Dieter
58:48
Thank you for a great presentation, and all of the hard work that went before to make it happen! You women are amazing!
Claire H, MOF
59:12
I second Viki's questions
Sarah Simon Ipswich
59:50
I second also
margeryhamlen
01:00:11
Me too
melissa ludtke
01:00:36
Add me to Viki Bok’s important question
Stephanie Lopez
01:00:46
I had another question. What is the plan to retrofit homes, is there a pot of money for it to help ensure it will happen. Also what would the detailed plan be to ensure a just transition for work , if you we are hit up against walls that wouldn’t want that to happen.
Reva Stein
01:00:48
Is the Mothers Out Front effort to get gardens and carbon eating plants on the roofs of buildings in Cambridge/ Boston. MA connected to this campaign?
Rachel Wyon
01:01:10
Thank you for this excellent presentation. It fits very well with prioritizing EJ communities and specific ways we in many different chapters can become active
Mary Brady MoF
01:02:18
Ditto to Viki's question. For example, I recall that the last time we set MA Campaign we limited the legislation we would actively pursue, and you've already identified several pieces of legislation, etc. Seems as though there are a significant number of specific goals to pursue. Does MA MOF have the capacity to take on all that is mentioned?
Sarah Simon Ipswich
01:03:38
can we add heating oil and propane to the goal?
Anne Wright, Arlington
01:03:39
to Stephanie's question: Mass Renews is looking for both state and federal funds to pay for the retrofits.
Stephanie Lopez
01:03:42
Thank you!
Stephanie Lopez
01:03:52
Thanks Anne
Karen Watkins, Acton
01:04:37
Have the actionars served mostly MOF members? Do they reach out to other community groups? Are there models/examples available? Do the actionars take so much people power that it lowers available energy for other campaigns? It sounds like an awesome idea for building community and outreach.
SueSwanson
01:05:11
The recently filed Green Future bill, HD1972, is another potential source of funds, especially for EJ communities.
Claire H, MOF
01:06:21
This sounds like a combination of several previous statewide as well as local or multi-town campaigns, each with their own leadership and culture. How will these be fused into one coordinated campaign, and fused without having too many directions?
margeryhamlen
01:07:10
Ditto Claire’s question
melissa ludtke
01:07:17
Want to be sure to keep Viki Bok’s question front and center: Nice job, folks! One concern -- there are lots of different priorities that fall within this campaign. How do we prioritize? And who is the main campaign target, if there is one?
Sarah Simon Ipswich
01:10:54
why is this different from the Legislative team? is it just some direction for the Legislative team?
Barbara DiVitto
01:11:28
if we are working on gas leak tagging, are we not promoting fixing the gas pipes/
Claire H, MOF
01:13:14
The previous campaigns developed significant expertise, contacts, etc., which amount to our power that tended to depend on a few key players. Kudos to them. Looking forward, does your campaign include plans that would tend to share that power and build up and develop leadership among grassroots members and teams?
Claire H, MOF
01:13:20
Also, will your campaign specifically emphasize the mothers' voice?
Anne Goodwin
01:13:27
Can you say more about the allies we would work with? The name of a group I'm not familiar with was mentioned in one of Carol's slides.
Andee Krasner (she/her) JP Chapter
01:13:51
Gas leak tagging can promote patching pipeline leaks - triage
Corinne Doud
01:13:54
I’m curious, how many people on average would turn out at your weekly action hours in Brookline?
melissa ludtke
01:15:34
What is your strategy/tactics to engage more MOF members in this campaign given that it is a continuation of the Beyond Gas work? How will you grow MOF membership and engagement with this campaign?
Melanie Renaud
01:15:40
Is the Clean Air team organizing the webinars or is it up to the local team
Cindy Callaway
01:15:51
Brookline has some great actions! Would love to get the full list for our chapters.
Sarah Simon Ipswich
01:17:22
those local actions will be good at gathering more interested moms, too
Ann Coles
01:17:33
Brookline chapter also provided training, teaching people to tweet and retweet our messages for impact during the weekly action hours.
Inge Damm-Luhr
01:18:22
Would starting a dialogue with local real state developers make sense? We need to show that there is demand for sustainable buildings and that it can be affordable .
Susan Lees
01:18:46
Thank you, Sue!
Sarah Simon Ipswich
01:19:13
second
Jude Aronstein -Acton
01:19:57
There is the state level and local re: no new fossil fuel connection. Is there any part of the campaign to help towns acquire home rule petition on no new fossil fuel connections?
Stephanie Lopez
01:21:07
Thank you everyone for this. Have another meeting.
Anne Wright
01:21:31
Jude: I think that the tactic you are talking about is definitely one possible tactic under this campaign!
Sarah Simon Ipswich
01:22:09
some of the key points overlap with Healthy soils - planting trees for healthy communities; working with frontline communities (on local greening for clean air, less gas in the homes)
Lee Ketelsen
01:22:23
I think yes to Jude's question. That is included in the work that was called the net zero stretch code, make sure it bans new building hook ups, and campaign for that through home rule petitions. Arlington and Brookline chapters are already providing resources and directly for the home rule petitions.
Rachel Wyon
01:22:52
Carol said it - thank you!
Lisa Cunningham
01:23:33
Home rule petitions would be a great action! There are a number of MOF members in different communities that are working on this. The Rocky Mountain building electrification accelerator program has lots of material that we can share.
Judy Chambliss
01:24:46
Thank you to all for a fine presentation. Lots of work to be doe.
Mary Brady MoF
01:25:11
If this campaign is selected, might the campaign team consider a "check in" within about 6 months to notice the feasibility of the scope? Feels as though quite a few impoetant goals have been clustered together and called a single campaign (though difficult to identify what to carve out!!)
Claire H, MOF
01:26:57
While I support the objectives, I'm concerned that with so many different goals, they'll end up competing with each other for attention and energy and be confusing for members
Madeleine, Amherst (Nonotuck homeland)
01:27:03
Oooh, great idea to "measure the concern." Track the progress, stay flexible. Reconsider which parts of the campaign are working and change horses if necessary.
Claire H, MOF
01:27:26
Ditto Madeleine
SueSwanson
01:27:32
That is certainly true for legislation!
Sarah Simon Ipswich
01:27:39
when is the story available ? where?
Max Hunter, WRox
01:28:05
Great to anticipate having access to many webinars and actionars!
Gilda Gussin
01:28:08
Can you say more about MOF’s role in the 1 million homes campaign? Are we trying to electrify residential buildings in our communities?
Sarah Simon Ipswich
01:28:55
This is super! I'm so glad we have shifted from transition from gas being the headline - it is so important, but this will be more relevant to my neighbors Thank you, thank you
Rachel Wyon
01:30:17
I want to thank you for prioritizing the perspective that we will not have any more sacrifice zones
margeryhamlen
01:30:32
Another meeting looms - thank you everyone!
Sarah Simon Ipswich
01:30:49
and renters?
Sarah Simon Ipswich
01:31:10
this is where the frontline community relationship is important
Suzanne Mrozak (she/her)
01:31:21
Thanks for an excellent presentation and discussion.
SueSwanson
01:31:24
Well timed! Thanks to you all!
Tracie Burns
01:31:24
thank you for your thoughtful presentation.
Lisa Cunningham
01:31:29
Great presentation thank you!!
Barbara DiVitto
01:31:30
thank you for an excellent presentation
Ali@e Trexler
01:31:32
Well done! Thank you.
Mary Brady MoF
01:31:37
My questions are mnot in any way intended to diminish the importance of all you plan. It's only about how realistic it is to do so much successfully Thank you!!!
Claire H, MOF
01:31:39
nice job
Jan Saglio
01:31:45
Wonderful presentation. Thank you!
Sue Stafford
01:31:47
Great, compelling presentation. Thanks everyone!
