This is a virtual event
We’re launching a campaign for a Climate, Jobs, and Justice Recovery to call on the state legislature and governor to act at the scale of the interrelated climate, injustice, and economic crises:
Invest in communities hit hardest by the climate and economic crisis
Create good, green jobs with family-sustaining wages and labor protections
Move NY State to 100% renewable energy
Make polluters pay for toxins that harm the planet and poison our communities
The legislature and governor will begin to develop their priorities for next year’s budget as soon as September, which means we need to act now. We need legislators, leadership, and the governor to prioritize green jobs, community investment, and a renewable economy, and to raise the money by making corporate polluters pay for the greenhouse gases and toxic pollutants they emit into our air.
RSVP now to secure your spot for our launch rally and press conference. The first 40 minutes will be a virtual rally followed by 20 minutes of reporter Q and A.
