Sign up for the No Empty Promises: Fund Climate Justice day of action in Albany on Monday, January 27th.

Last year, we rallied, lobbied, and called our way to pass the nation's most progressive climate legislation. The Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act is now the law of the land, but we won't get the urgent climate justice action that we need unless there is money for climate in this year's budget.

Join us for a day of action in Albany – we'll be singing and dancing to celebrate our monumental victory in 2019 and rallying and lobbying to express our demands for climate justice in this year's budget. It's time for our elected officials to put money with their mouth is.

More details to come, and please indicate your transportation needs when you sign up!
