Become an Affiliate of 350 Mass!
350 Mass is a grassroots, volunteer-led climate action network! We are working to push our cities and towns to commit to 100% renewable energy. We are also working to push our state closer to 100% renewables, through legislation that would increase the amount of clean energy we use, expand access to solar, put a price on carbon, fix gas leaks, and stop new fossil fuel pipelines. You can see more about our statewide goals here:
In addition to member nodes, 350 Mass also has affiliates. Any community-based group that agrees with one or more statewide campaign goals of 350 Mass and wants to be more plugged in to the efforts to accomplish these goals can join our network as an affiliate by filling out the form below.

What are your short and long term goals?
Having reviewed the mission, goals and objectives of 350 Mass, are you in agreement with our core organizational values? (e.g. a climate group that advocates for natural gas as a bridge fuel would probably not be aligned with 350 Mass, even if the end goals are shared)
Do you agree to help advance one or more of 350 Mass' statewide campaigns and publicly state your affiliation with 350 Mass?
We also ask affiliates to share part or all of their contact list so that members can receive updates on 350 Mass statewide campaign(s) and/or the weekly newsletter -- we will work with you to figure out what makes sense in this area!
