Massachusetts Renews' policies will set us on the path to a future where every Bay Stater – Black, brown, and white, Indigenous and immigrant – has a safe place to call home, food for their family, and clean air to breathe and water to drink.
We'll put thousands of Massachusetts residents to work growing local food and retrofitting 100,000 homes each year to dramatically increase their energy efficiency and indoor air quality. These policies will accelerate Massachusetts' economic recovery and the transition to the resilient society we need.
Create thousands of dignified, well-compensated jobs and launch a large-scale, union-led job training program to give workers the skills necessary to join expanding Green New Deal industries.
Our Whole Home Retrofit Expansion policy will put thousands of Massachusetts residents to work retrofitting 100,000 homes each year to improve their energy-efficiency and indoor air quality, improving health outcomes, dramatically reducing utility bills, and slashing the carbon emissions that are causing the climate crisis.
Our Farm Corp policy will start a group of urban community gardens and rural farms that pay workers fair wages to grow nutritious food locally, using practices that are good for the earth.
