Last week we testified at city hall about methane leaks in NYC. Natural gas (made mostly of methane) is not a clean, safe, or efficient energy source. There are methane leaks at every stage of the system, from the pipelines to pipes and appliances in people’s homes. . . Methane is terrible for the atmosphere and can be hazardous to human health. The “natural” part means nothing—it’s a greenhouse gas. It’s 86x more potent than CO2 for the first 20 years it’s in the atmosphere. It accelerates climate change at a pace we don’t have time for. . . It’s also highly flammable and has caused serious explosions in NY and elsewhere. Eight people died in the gas explosions in East Harlem in 2014. . . Some studies show that more than half of homes w gas service have some degree of gas leaks. But in NY, there is insufficient mapping of where leaks actually are. If you don’t even know where the problem is how do you expect to fix it? . . Methane leaks/explosions are especially detrimental to communities of color, which are already disproportionately exposed to environmental hazards, and low income communities. There is no plan for when explosions like this happen and communities already suffering from lack of health insurance, safe housing, employment, child care, etc. will be hit the hardest. . . NY city council members introduced 2 bills which would require methane leaks to be surveyed and mapped, so the leaks can be repaired by the gas corporations servicing them. . . This is yet another reason why we need to make a #JustTransition to clean, renewable energy instead of continuing to trust systems that have failed us time and time again. . . . . . #brooklynmom #mothersoutfront #redhookbrooklyn #methane #renewableresources #renewablepower energy #cleanenergy #solar #environmentaljustice #ej #methaneleaks #naturalgas

#trash is rampant everywhere. This is what I found in my place of work. To-go salads, half eaten, ready to be shipped off to the dump. When will the workplace enforce conscious #consumerism ? Oh wait....human rights. Yup, don't tell me what to do. What about the earth's rights? Who speaks for the earth? The forests, the animals, the rivers and oceans? . . . #extinctionrebellion #fridaysforfuture #gailbradbrook #mothersoutfront #sunrise #sierraclub #actnow #standupforwhatisright #followthatdancinghippie

This past weekend we, along with Mothers Out Front, hosted a film screening of Paris to Pittsburgh, a film that celebrates how Americans are demanding and developing real solutions in the face of climate change. Our Director, Justine Cohen, highly recommends watching the film and sharing it with family and friends: "This film was the greatest, most uplifting thing I've seen on climate change! It is literally a 'good news' exploration of every amazing initiative happening across America. I took my older kids (who are learning these frightening facts in school) to watch and they left uplifted and inspired, talking excitedly about the possibilities and envisioning life where instead of ignoring, we act! Watch with your family at home if you can't make the screenings". If you missed the film screening, attend the upcoming screening at Agassiz North Hall Community Room in Cambridge on Jun 17 at 7pm. If you can’t make it to Cambridge, watch the film for free on @natgeo website (link in bio). . . . . #mothersoutfront #climatechange #paristopittsburgh #filmscreening #nationalgeographic #stopclimatechange #savetheearth #community #gather #climatechangeisreal #globalwarming

With all of the negative anti-trump hype, I need to post a serene photo. I have never been interested in politics, nor have I ever really felt effected by the presidential leadership of the times. These days are starkly different. I find myself deeply saddened by the state of this nation. Activism is my only refuge and I even struggle with that. I am on the cusp, the brink of two realms: action and inaction. I desperately seek clarity on how to move forward. Thank you rebels and activists, you give me inspiration and hope. . . . #extinctionrebellion #mothersoutfront #sunrise #sierraclub #everyoneelseimissed

Mothers Out Front is hosting a walking tour in JP today of spaces and places working toward green solutions. They have included our #JamaicaPlain store because of our coffee composting program. For the past two weeks, our #WestRoxbury store kept all their grounds too so we could put them out for today’s event and we love seeing what ISN’T going into the trash all in one place. Join the tour from 2-4 today and learn more. #greensolutions #mothersoutfront #composting #coffeegrounds #madeinjp #centrestreet #makeyourgardengrow #icecream #coffee

I’ve been feeling an incredible need to steer our planet towards a more hopeful future for our children and grandchildren. Research shows up to 50% of green houses gasses destroying our planet come from animal agriculture. I’m challenging myself to cook and eat more plant-based. Hopefully inspiring you to make more Vegan choices too! Today super easy Brussel sprout and fennel soup!! Delicious. #plantbased #plantbaseddiet #plantbasednation #mothersoutfront #veganrecipes #veganinspiration #vegano #veg

Inspired by this innovative drop-off center in California, I’m stepping up. I’m committed to something radical this year for the planet. Together with other Denver-based leaders in Mothers Out Front, we’ll be asking that Denver Public Schools install solar panels in as many schools as possible, starting with elementary. Will it work? Who knows, but it certainly won’t if we don’t try. #watchmenow #bighairyaudaciousgoals #greennewdeal #GreenEducation #EarthDay #DenverPublicSchools #waitforit #MothersOutFront #solar

Me and a *few* moms got together to talk about very important stuff over the weekend. Honestly, couldn’t believe how many were there. They all had very different, yet very similar issues going on in their own communities. When gas is being fracked a thousand feet from your house, or your low income community housing is being bulldozed for a pipeline, OR you nearly died in the California wildfires, OR a giant/explosive gas compressor station is being built a hundred feet from the home you planned to retire in... you kinda start giving a shit. We heard truly harrowing stories from frontline community members. And we heard about success and real change from our more seasoned counterparts. I’m so grateful I got to experience this event. I can’t even describe how powerful it was. @mothersoutfront #climatechange #cleanenergy #mothersoutfront #environmentaljustice

"I don't want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic. I want you to act as if the house were on fire. Because it is." - Greta Thunberg. I'm finding and supporting the Youth Strike for Climate March 15 with @kidlit4climate and #mothersoutfront. And I’m joining @emmaillustrate in her great campaign @kidlit4climate.

Yesterday @mothers.out.front members from all over the country came together to strategize about moving our communities away from natural gas to truly clean energy. The goal is big, the obstacles are tricky, and the forces working against us are strong. But today I feel bolstered, because every one of these women had strengths and skillsets that combine to create an unstoppable force. And we all get it... its not about competing with each other, or going at it alone. It’s about working together and lifting each other up. #wegotthis . #mothersoutfront #mothersoutfrontrva #environment #climatechange #environmentaljustice #racialjustice #energyfreedom #cleanenergy #savetheplanet #grassrootsactivism #bethechange #strongertogether #shepersisted #feminism #womenempowerment

Another Mothers Out Front meeting yesterday. Some big decisions are about to be made! We are looking at issues like urban heat islands, green transit, and solar schools. How can we solve these problems? Will our local government allow and fund solutions? With local elections coming up, how can we educate voters to vote for climate change solution supporters? . Msg me if you want to know more about the work we’re doing. . #greennewdeal #rvagreen #rva #richmond #richmondva #environment #environmentaljustice #climatechange #climatejustice #racialjustice #savetheplanet #mothersoutfront #mothersoutfrontrva #kidsknow #momsknow #climatechangeisreal #greentransportation #solarenergy #greenenergy #cleanenergy

I’m here in Salem, with HUNDREDS of Oregonians rallying at the Capitol with a message for lawmakers: Clean Energy Jobs is the biggest, boldest thing we can do to protect our climate, and we must pass the bill into law NOW! We’re the first generation to experience the effects of climate change and the LAST generation that can do anything about it. Clean Energy Jobs is how Oregon can do its part AND set an example for other states. Proud to be here in Salem rallying for the bill today, for my precious children, and for yours. #orpol #orleg #CleanEnergyJobs #CEJLobbyDay2019 #climatecrisis #climatechangeisreal #mothersoutfront #350pdx

Although scientists have known about climate change for decades, the United States has ignored their warnings. Federal lawmakers are putting the profits of a few before the health and prosperity of our children, and the many others affected by fossil fuels and climate change. This is why the 21 young people are suing to protect their constitutional rights. “Climate change is intrinsically linked to public health, food and water security, migration, peace, and security. It is a moral issue. It is an issue of social justice, human rights and fundamental ethics. We have a profound responsibility to the fragile web of life on this Earth, and to this generation and those that will follow.” – United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon #climatechangeisreal #climatechange #publichealth #crisis #kidsfirst #mothersoutfront #letsciencespeak #healthiswealth

This weekend i got back to my photojournalist roots by shooting an environmental protest for the climate summit this week in SF. I worked with @mothersoutfront and felt overwhelmed to see that so many people had come out. So glad that I got to share this moment with Noa - camera up front, baby on the back. Life changes, but the passion is still the same. Thank you @rpurchia for bringing me along and introducing me to this wonderful organization! #mothersoutfront #climatechange #climatechangeisreal #photojournalism #photojournalist #workingmom

Heritage O’s - our #Cheerios replacement- is Indy and Ellis approved. They are a little flatter and crunchier than Cheerios. We also like the 365 Organic Rolled Oats to replace #quakeroatmeal @erikafreeman @crystinabrooks @elisa.freeman ////Even if the EPA still says #glyphosate is safe- where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Studies link glyphosate to cancer (among other things) and Monsanto is rallying hard to bury the truth. I definitely do not want to feed my family even “little bits” of glyphosate every day. Heritage O’s has added cane sugar and honey- but it’s still relatively low (3g per 1/2 cup). #naturespathorganic #mothersoutfront

Mothers Out Front!! Another focussed group about "Cooking for our Future". Focussed on informing us on how to transform our kitchens from gas or electric stoves to energy efficient induction stoves minus the chemicals released through gas cooking. Thank you for your commitment @mothersoutfront for reminding is to think about the future, for our children and working one household at a time to change our mindsets. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #saveourplanet #climatechange #climatechangeisreal #mothersoutfront #bostonian #bostonusa #bostonlove #secretboston #scenesofboston #scenesofma #bostonian #bostonattitude @bostondotcom #beantowner #beantownmoms #inductioncooking #inductioncooktop #beantownlove #beantowngirl #environmentalimpact #bethechange #madewithlove #somuchtosay #waytotheheart #igersmass #igersboston #bostonnomad #bostontraveler #bostonusa #Boston #bethechangeyouwanttosee

This beautiful op-ed connecting #MothersDay to taking action to protect children ran in yesterday's #MercuryNews. A big shout-out to Linda Hutchins-Knowles (pictured here) and Stacy Levy, of #MothersOutFront , for connecting the dots so eloquently and spreading the word. They make the strong case that #ClimateChange is a children's issue and a justice issue, and that anyone who loves their children should care.

A couple weeks ago I visited @studiojane ’s Sustainability Studio class at Massart to teach them a bit about performance art, environmental art and activism. They’ve been mapping methane gas leaks around Boston with #Mothersoutfront and researcher #NathanPhillips for a final project. This was one of our performance sketches that calls attention to the little unpatched holes in the street that are used to measure the levels of toxicity seeping out. @sustainabilitystudio #performanceart #environmentalism #gasleaks #mapping #massart #teachingartist #flowers
