Brookline teams participates in 4 events during the 2017 Climate Week in Brookline

Our Mothers Out Front Brookline team participated in Brookline's Climate Week this year, taking part in 4 events.  We started off in early March with a library display: 

Retrospective at the Library

Sarah, Cathy and Joan put together an informative retrospective on the gas leaks work in Massachusetts, displayed at the Brookline Main Library in March and April.

Activism in Towns

It was standing room only at the Activism in Towns meeting on Wednesday night, March 29.  Our Brookline team,  with Audrey Schulman from HEETma.org and Nathan Philips from BU,  spoke about the gas leaks issue and the possible solutions/advances that can be made to decrease the enormous amounts of methane gas escaping from underground pipes.

3R Depot

Our Brookline team took part in the 3R Depot.  Members braved sleet and freezing rain to get to the Pierce School venue.  Alex, Margaret, Ana, Chen, Jenny, Daria, Mary and two young friends participated in the first two hours of tabling.

Youth in Action

The crowning moment of Climate Week for us was our Youth in Action event: six young leaders working on climate problems all in their own ways.  We left motivated, inspired, energized.
