Fossil Free Somerville is working towards a 100% Renewables vision for Somerville.
Watch this page for updates on initiatives related to our 100% Renewables campaign, including our partnership with Union United.
Partnership with Union United
Fossil Free Somerville is a member of the Union United a three year old coalition made up of small business owners, residents, immigrant groups, religious congregations, labor unions, and community-based organizations, working to ensure that the Union Square redevelopment process results in tangible benefits — not displacement — for the Union Square community.
We are working together to win a community benefits agreement (CBA) – a binding legal contract we can sign with the master developer and the City. We are fighting for a CBA that will include requirements for affordable housing, decent paying jobs, green space, environmentally friendly construction and other important goals. It will create a model to shape future development across the city that will insure that the poor, working class, long term residents and others share in the benefits of the process and are not simply its victims.
