Lead Organizer: The First Parish Cambridge UU Environmental Justice Task Force

Senator Pacheco is the founding Chair of the Standing Senate Committee on Global Warming and Climate Change and is Senate Vice Chair of the Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy (TUE). Senator Pacheco initiated, authored and secured passage of the Global Warming Solutions Act, and has been a leading champion for alternative energy and greenhouse gas reduction legislation.

The Senator will talk with us about current legislative proposals and strategies for implementing the Global Warming Solutions Act, especially in the environment of the Green New Deal and the climate action urgency highlighted in the latest U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Report. He will also discuss how we can best support state legislative proposals for the climate.
