Join Massachusetts Peace Action, Earth Stewardship at First Church Cambridge, and our co-hosts for a screening and discussion of “This Changes Everything,” the new documentary based on the Naomi Klein book of the same name that weaves together threads of climate, racial and economic injustice and the movement of movements already rising for a new, non-extractive economy.
Co-Hosts include 350 Massachusetts, Grassroots International and Boston Downwinders. A representative from each co-host will facilitate discussions at a thematic table, to take the issues raised by the film into our work and lives.
Please register so we know you’re coming, and if possible make a donation! Pre-registration is NOT required, but will help us plan food and discussion. Renting the film cost us $225.

The Grand Staircase in the Massachusetts State House reverberated with the call to Close Pilgrim NOW this afternoon as citizens held a two hour speakout detailing every aspect of the problem.
The Pilgrim nuclear plant is operated by Entergy Corp. which has said it will close the reactor in 2019. Even the nuclear-loving NRC (Nuclear Regulatory Commission) has designated this plant one of the three most unsafe in the nation.

In the name of national security, our country's policies are causing multiple, systemic crises. These include climate catastrophe, extreme inequality, constant wars, deep-seated racism, mass incarceration, and a militarized culture.
Only large social movements can remove these barriers to genuine security and construct a society based on Sustainable Security.
This conference will explore three pillars of sustainable national and world security:
- A fairly-shared global prosperity based on economic, social, and racial justice
- Emergency action to address climate change and build a new, fossil-fuel-free energy system
- A Foreign Policy for All based on even-handed diplomacy, ending our disastrous military interventions, abolition of nuclear weapons, and reclaiming war resources for the urgent needs that face our world
Join Us! in this effort to strategize, collaborate and mobilize for effective action together.
