Montclair Climate Action is a group of local residents formed out of concern for the climate crisis, but also with the belief that Montclair can be a leader in responding to the climate crisis. They work with the town government to promote policies that encourage the transition to renewable energy, including townwide renewable energy adoption, townwide composting, and the purchase of electric vehicles. MCA also works with the public to build support for these policies and encourages residents to do what they can to reduce waste, buy renewable energy, and use public transportation. Through systemic change, MCA wants to create Montclair and a world where we can all live in a way that leaves a better world for our children and grandchildren.
