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.
