About Us

Climate Action Now-Western Mass (CAN)

The climate justice movement is rapidly growing across the world as more and more people realize that sustained mass action is our greatest source of power.  Climate Action Now was created in the summer of 2012 as a community response to the growing environmental catastrophe. We are an all volunteer group, dedicated to building a powerful climate justice movement through organizing, action and public education.  We invite everyone who wants to help build a vibrant climate justice movement to join us.

An inclusive, grassroots community connected by our passion to preserve a livable world and create a more just society, our vision is to provide a home for all people in our area engaged in climate justice work and campaigns so that we can mutually support and strengthen all of our efforts.

We currently have over 2,500 recipients receiving our online newsletter. We hold monthly public  gatherings which bring together 50 to 100 people, many of whom participate in our working groups and campaigns.

We’d love to hear from you! The best way to get in touch is to send us a note at climateactionnowmass@gmail.com
