For 4 years, New York’s socialists have been fighting to take back our energy system from fossil fuel profiteers and make the Green New Deal a reality. After unprecedented climate organizing that pitted organized labor, climate activists, legislators at every level of government, and working-class New Yorkers against the full forces of fossil capital, they’ve scored the biggest Green New Deal win in US history—so far!

New York’s DSA chapters are taking the “just transition” from slogan to reality—and they want YOU to know how they did it. Join the BPRA Mass Call to hear from the organizers who made it happen, and how we can grow the movement for public power to win a Green New Deal from coast to coast!
