UPDATE: Join us at the Massachusetts State House 5/3 for a hearing and rally.* RSVP here.

We are at an incredible moment. Yesterday, Kinder Morgan announced they are suspending work on their massive, multi-billion dollar fracked gas pipeline proposal. This is a huge victory for New England, for Clean Water Action and for our many partners who have fought the project for years.
