April 7th is an important date in an important week. Both the state and federal legislature are on recess and back home in New York City. It is time for us to make a loud and powerful splash to tell them that they need to pass the Climate and Community Investment Act (CCIA) on a state level and the THRIVE Act on the federal level. New York Renews, Indivisible, and the Working Families Party are organizing a huge Week of Action to build support for this critical climate justice legislation! Rise and Resist is having a rally at Union Square near the Climate Clock followed by a march to Washington Square to demand that our elected officials champion climate justice! We need your help! Please bring signs with your own groups’ names, or the names of your neighborhoods, and signs demanding your specific legislators #PassTheCCIA.  Let’s make sure representatives from all over NYC understand the climate clock is ticking!
