Support Green Transit, Green Jobs in New York!

The COVID-19 pandemic has devastated New York communities - especially Black, brown, and working class communities, who have struggled most with income loss and unemployment. At the same time, we face a climate emergency that is also hurting these communities first, and the pandemic has only worsened these and other inequities.

We need climate action and good jobs like never before. We need Green Transit, Green Jobs.

To recover from the pandemic, New York needs to invest in creating good jobs in the state and prioritizing the long standing crisis of climate change. Together, the Green Transit (S3535/A3090), Green Jobs (S3405/A2083) bills will help transit agencies transition their fleets to electric vehicles, while supporting good local jobs in New York State. Together, these bills will help reduce emissions and create family-sustaining jobs in the renewable energy economy.

We need your help calling on state representatives to move these bills to a floor vote NOW - before the end of the current term next week. Send a letter to your representatives today!
