We recently had our forum “A Livable Commonwealth: Trees as a Public Good” . Below you can find links to the recording, and the chat transcript!
The forum documented the important role of trees and forests for our quality of life and mitigating climate change. We heard compelling stories about successful organizing and legislation in local communities to protect urban tree canopies and ongoing work to protect forests. We heard from participants in the chat that the threats facing trees across the Commonwealth are pernicious and pervasive.

Who We Are

This forum was brought to you by the joint efforts of Massachusetts Call2Action and Our Revolution Massachusetts.

Mass Call2Action is a collaborative group of Democratic activists across the Commonwealth, working to bring transparency, information, deeper understanding, and consideration of issues and policies to Democrats in Massachusetts. The forum team has produced highly regarded programs on the topics of climate, social justice, affordable housing, Medicare for All, and prison reform. https://www.facebook.com/search/top?q=mass call2action

ORMA and the ORMA GND/Climate Crisis Working Group grew out of the 2016 Bernie Sanders presidential campaign and are dedicated to growing the “political revolution” energized by that campaign. We depend on the energy and passion of our volunteers. In addition to the Call2Action forum team, this forum was the product of three separate ORMA teams: The Climate Crisis Working Group, the ORMA Tech Team, and the ORMA Communications Team. We never have enough hands, eyes, minds and imaginations to do all the work that is needed, all three of these teams need additional volunteers. If you like what you saw, have ideas on how to expand or build on it, you can support our work by:
