Morgan Browne goes by many labels, but one soars above the rest: mother. That was clear enough Wednesday, when Brown and her one-year-old took to the podium in Concord to outline the urgency of climate change.
“This little thing is the biggest thing in my world right now, and I worry so much about her future,” Brown said, her daughter Adelaide bouncing contentedly against her shoulder.
Coming together to improve that future is a global mandate, Brown maintained. And for environmental advocates like herself in New Hampshire, the first stop is the state legislature, she said.
Brown was flanked by about two dozen advocates Wednesday morning who came together a week before “Veto Day” – when state lawmakers take up Gov. Chris Sununu’s vetoes – to turn up the pressure.
At the press conference, members of Mothers Out Front, a Cambridge-based effort dedicated to climate change policies, urged lawmakers to overturn a range of gubernatorial vetoes on clean energy.
