Action: Prevent the Peabody Peaker Plant

How:

  • Sign this petition! The Massachusetts Municipal Wholesale Electric Company (MMWEC) is proposing to build a 60 MW natural gas and oil peaker power plant in Peabody, MA. This petition calls on Ronald Decurzio, the CEO of MMWEC, to withdraw the proposal to build this dirty peaker and, if necessary, replace it with any of the clean alternatives now available. In a global pandemic and a climate crisis, we can no longer accept new fossil fuel infrastructure that will poison our air, pollute our water, and harm our communities.

Action: Support Criminal Justice and Police Reform

How:

  • Join the ACLU in urging your state legislators to pass the original, strong language of the MA Policing bill, which prevents racially-biased surveillance and was already approved by the legislature. Click here to take action!
