WHY: Depending on who wins the upcoming election, the world that future generations will be inheriting may be uninhabitable. Already, the Northeast is warming faster than any other part of the country and its sea levels are rising and destroying homes and habitats. Despite Massachusetts’ progressive climate legislation, we still aren’t doing enough, and on November 3rd, it’s imperative to elect officials on every level that are committed to fighting for our future. Sunrise Watertown wants to ensure that everyone of voting age understands just what is at stake.
