News Briefs: MASSPIRG launches clean energy campaign

This semester the student advocacy group is focusing its efforts on climate change.

North Adams — Fighting climate change and alleviating hunger and homelessness were a few of the big issues discussed at Thursday night’s kick-off meeting of Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts’ (MCLA) MASSPIRG chapter.

This semester the student advocacy group is focusing its efforts on climate change. MASSPIRG’s campaign to repower Massachusetts with 100 percent clean and renewable energy comes at a time when public concern about climate change is a prominent issue of discussion.

In addition to repowering Massachusetts with 100 percent clean energy, the MCLA MASSPIRG chapter will be working to alleviate hunger and homelessness in the North Adams area and to get out the vote for the presidential primary elections on Tuesday, March 1.

Present at the meeting was State Representative Gailanne Cariddi who stressed the importance of being involved in the political process. “It’s really important that you go vote,” said Rep. Cariddi. “And you can find something that you can make real difference on.”
