Campuses around the country are homes to some of our most capable and active citizens. So it is reasonable to believe that students are the ones to be on the forefront of a transition to 100% renewable energy. Thats’ why @fitchburgstate should be a #100RECampus.

Come by our table on Monday October 7th in the Main Quad 11AM-2PM and sign our petition for a commitment to 100% Renewable Energy

“The right to vote is something many of us take for granted. Many have fought, marched, and suffered for the right to cast our ballots for who we want to be our leaders. Some people will never have that luxury. Therefore, it is crucially important that we make sure we do not waste the opportunity to not only register, but to vote and take part in our democratic system.” -SGA President Matt Badagliacca

A big thanks to Fitchburg State SGA Pres. for coming out to our NVRD table on Tuesday. With his help we were able to get 42 students to pledge to vote in upcoming elections!

100% renewable energy 'moonshot' for millennials at Fitchburg State forum

Thanks to the Worcester Telegram & Gazette for covering our event last night!

"Calling it the millennial generation’s “moonshot,” environmental advocates and state representatives met with several millennials at Fitchburg State University Tuesday night to discuss how to achieve a 100% renewable energy future."

“Climate change is very much a ‘right now’ problem. For generations we’ve kicked the can down the road ... but as millennials we don’t really have that option,” said Kevin O’Reilly, field organizer for the Environment Massachusetts Research and Policy Center. “But it’s not all doom and gloom. We can be the generation that pulls our planet back from the brink. It’s this generation’s moonshot.”

Happy 100% Renewable Energy Day! It’s the 100th day of the year, and in 2019, we’ve already seen commitments from communities, cities, and states across the country to using 100% renewable energy. Who’s next?

Well if we have anything to do with it.. it will be MA! Here is MASSPIRG Students at the Statehouse Monday talking to our elected officials about passing the 100% Renewable Energy Act!

Also check out our Central Mass Millennials for 100% Renewable Energy event last night at Fitchburg State University! Special thanks to attendees, Environment Massachusetts, State Representative Natalie Higgins and Representative Jon Zlotnik for attending!
