Concord Votes to Support the Green New Deal
First Parish in Concord, MA, a Unitarian Universalist church, unanimously voted in favor of a resolution to endorse the aspirational goals of the Green New Deal (GND) at its annual meeting of the congregation on June 9, 2019. Feel free to visit the First Parish website and share the GND resolution with your own representatives.
The Green New Deal put forth by Senator Edward Markey of MA and Representative Alexandria
Ocasio-Cortez of NY proposes a ten-year national mobilization effort to address the escalating social chaos we will encounter with runaway climate change. First Parish sees the GND as the only federal plan put forward so far to adequately address the interwoven crises of climate catastrophe and economic inequality at the scale that science and justice demand.

Fair Share Passes 1st, Vote 147 - 48!
There are three major hurdles to make it over and we cleared the first! We are one step closer to the Fair Share amendment becoming law in Nov 2022.
The amendment must pass its second Constitutional Convention in 2021 before finally going to the ballot in November of 2022 when voters across the Commonwealth will have the opportunity to vote the amendment into law.
