Renew is a truly unprecedented multi-racial regional coalition across the six New England states. The coalition – which now includes more than 150 organizations – has brought together environmental justice advocates, frontline communities, Indigenous tribes, organized labor, racial justice organizations, and youth groups.

In early 2020, these organizations developed a detailed and ambitious regional policy vision that takes intersectionality seriously, simultaneously addressing the climate crisis, mass unemployment and racial injustice. Renew coalitions in each state shaped that vision into policies tailored to their home states, and are running ambitious advocacy campaigns to make those policies a reality.

Renew New England Alliance does not endorse or oppose candidates for elected office. While we believe strongly in the urgency and importance of the legislation our coalition has developed and advocates for, the coalition does not suggest that voters assess legislators based upon their positions on a single piece of legislation alone.
