Diane Jones started this petition to The Shrewsbury Town Meeting

Residents of Shrewsbury are putting forward a resolution to declare a Climate and Ecological Emergency. Shrewsbury must state on record that the climate crisis threatens our town, region, state, civilization and the world. This emergency is driven by human activities including fossil fuel combustion and land misuse, resulting in rapidly increasing global heating. The health, safety and economic security of this community are already at risk from rising seas, deadly storms, dangerous heatwaves, acidifying oceans, melting ice sheets, and major disruptions to the ecosystems on which we depend. 

We are community organizers in Shrewsbury deeply concerned about the future of our planet. Shrewsbury must tell the truth on the climate and ecological emergency. We must pass this climate declaration resolution in May.  A coalition of Shrewsbury green groups and individuals have joined together under the banner of Emergency Everywhere Shrewsbury. .Emergency Everywhere Shrewsbury endorses the resolution that these concerned citizens are putting forward. To learn more about our demands and read the text of this resolution, please visit our website: www.emergencyshrewsbury.org. This campaign is backed by a larger non-violent network of climate activists from all over the state, Extinction Rebellion Massachusetts.

Please sign this petition to encourage our Town Meeting members to adopt this resolution to ensure a livable future.
