MCAN in the Media

One great way to educate your friends and neighbors, as well as decision makers, is grassroots media.

This summer has been a roller coaster for offshore wind and other clean energy initiatives. Because of passionate activists like you, we have had Letters to the editor and Opinion Editorials flooding in from all corners of the state.

More than half of the people who read the paper read the opinion pages. Letters to the editor and Opinion Editorials stimulate the conversation about climate change and help people learn what we can do as residents of Massachusetts to bring cleaner energy into our state. 

If you would like to take part in your own letter to the editor or opinion editorial, please contact Faith Simon at
