About Us

We are mostly Chelmsford residents, many who met through the  MA Chapter of Elders Climate Action (ECA) . We share a commitment to climate legislation, advocacy and education in our community to prevent the harmful effects of climate change and protect the planet. Please reach out to one of us if you have any questions or concerns. 

Are you concerned about climate change?
If we work together we can make a positive difference and slow the effects of climate change.
