Join Bronx youth, community leaders, environmental justice advocates, faith leaders, elected officials and other allies to champion an ecologically and economically just future for the Bronx and call on Bronx elected officials to pass the Climate and Community Investment Act (CCIA) now! The CCIA is a chance to undo the historic harm committed against residents of the Bronx and other historically ignored communities all over New York through measures that eliminate harmful emissions and move New York to an economy based on renewable energy.
