Advocacy

Sustainable Marblehead has an Advocacy Committee that is dedicated to gaining deep knowledge of proposed legislation and regulatory policies that affect our mission on the local, state and national levels.

The committee meets on a regular basis to identify those proposals which, if passed or adopted, would best advance the organization’s mission and the working groups’ initiatives.

It acts by educating members and engaging working groups to support these proposals. The committee also works collaboratively with other like-minded organizations and advocates on behalf of Sustainable Marblehead-supported proposals with appointed and elected officials and legislative bodies.

  

The Advocacy Committee tracks the following issues and proposals on behalf of Sustainable Marblehead:

  • All proposals relative to achieving net-zero carbon emissions

  • Alternatives to the building of new fossil fuel infrastructure, including clean energy alternatives to the Peabody Peaker Plant in which the Town of Marblehead has invested

  • Clean energy production and energy efficiency

  • Clean transportation alternatives

  • Clean air and water

  • Reduction of plastics and pesticides

  • Localization of food and energy production

  • Environmental justice
