WHAT IS EMERGENCY WATERTOWN?
Despite scientific consensus about the climate and ecological crisis and increase in climate catastrophes across the US, our federal, state and local governments continue to operate as though it is business as usual. In response to their silence and inaction, XR and our partners launched Emergency Watertown, a campaign to compel our municipal leaders to start actively telling the truth about what we are up against and do everything in their power to make Watertown sustainable and prepare this town and its citizens for what is coming.
Following declarations of climate emergencies by New York City, Boston, and even small Massachusetts municipalities such as Acton, the time is now for Watertown to act! On February 23rd, 2021, the Town Council can vote to endorse the Resolution Endorsing the Declaration of a Climate Emergency.
