350 Massachusetts (“350MA”) is Better Future Project’s volunteer-led statewide climate action network. 350MA is made up of hundreds of engaged activists who work with the media, organize events, educate their communities, lobby lawmakers, and more. We have ten nodes across the state; we tripled in size in 2013 and plan to triple again in 2014. 350MA is currently focusing on two specific statewide campaigns:
1) Climate Legacy: We’re calling on Governor Deval Patrick to turn the tide on fossil fuels by banning coal, fracking and tar sands, stopping the development of new fossil fuel infrastructure, expanding the use of renewables, and setting a price on carbon pollution.
2) Divestment from Fossil Fuels: We’re working to divest the Massachusetts pension fund from the oil, gas and coal companies that are destroying our climate.
In addition to the two statewide priority campaigns, 350MA volunteers work on a number of local initiatives, including efforts to pass a carbon tax, improve public transportation, and more.

Better Future Project created 350MA in June 2012 and continues to support 350MA. Although 350MA is closely aligned with the mission and values of 350.org, it is not part of 350.org, but rather is a part of Better Future Project. More information about the structure of 350MA is available here.
