Canton Residents for a Sustainable, Equitable Future
Canton Residents for a Sustainable, Equitable Future (CR4SEF) - or "Sustainable Canton," is a welcoming group determined to halt the rapidly evolving climate crisis and mitigate its effects by promoting public engagement through education and thoughtful action.
We stand in support of frontline communities and those most heavily impacted by climate change. We seek collaboration with local, state, and national efforts to rapidly transition to a renewable, resilient and equitable society and economy that protects a livable environment.
Canton residents of all ages are encouraged to "act locally," to help halt the climate crisis. We have an array of projects at any given time.

COMMUNITY CHOICE AGGREGATION
In this critical election year, CR4SEF is endorsing candidates whom we believe will act to rapidly reduce carbon emmissions, address the disparate impacts of the climate crisis, and ensure a rapid transition to a clean renewable energy economy. The Biden/Harris Energy and Environmental Justice Policy aligns with our mission, goals, & aspirations. Consequently, as a 501(c)4 organization, we endorsed and actively supported the ticket.
Supporting the fight against the Weymouth Compressor Station

While the fight continues, it is important to recognize the impact of this tireless group during the past 6 years. Read 11 profound FRRACS accomplishments.
