The Massachusetts Climate Action Network (MCAN) is a statewide organization that coordinates the work of locally organized groups across Massachusetts fighting the climate crisis. We have a large and vigorous community of 46 chapters located in a fifth of the state's communities, hundreds of members and supporters who communicate, network, and share information related to climate action. Our chapters represent a broad cross-section of community-based grassroots organizations, and we have solid collaborative relationships with them. We also work closely with other environmental and community-focused organizations working to create solutions to the climate crisis. MCAN was founded in 2000, and in 2009 became a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
