Private jets are the most polluting form of transportation. MassPort wants to increase private jet access at Hanscom Civil Airfield.
Massachusetts has a law that emissions have to plummet by 2050, so why does private jet traffic get a "pass"?

PUBLIC RALLY to Stop Private Jet Expansion
at Hanscom or Anywhere
State House steps, 24 Beacon St., Boston
Attending the Rally is one of the best ways you can help right now. Numbers matter when we need to demonstrate that the will of citizens is to STOP this and any other private jet expansion because it’s a luxury that our climate can’t afford.
Following the outside portion of the rally, where we will hear remarks from Senator Barrett and others, we will deliver our 10,000+ petition signatures to Governor Healey by her office with a message that: Massport’s plans are a direct and immediate threat to Massachusetts efforts to combat climate change–and we citizens look to her to show bold climate leadership by using her influence with Massport to cancel the project.
With our presence and numbers, we will show Governor Healey–and our state legislators–that she has broad grassroots support for stopping the private jet expansion at Hanscom or anywhere.
