Please join the Social Justice Team and New York Renews on this important Climate Lobby Day in Albany. These days are informative and fun — much calmer than a rally, though they do require a bit of walking!
February 28th is the last time our legislators will be in their district offices before they submit their budgets for final negotiations. We need to make sure they hear from us about how critical it is to include climate justice funding in this year’s New York State budget.
We’re asking for at least $1 billion now, and at least $7 billion per year by passing the Climate and Community Investment Act. We know that our communities can’t wait for real investments in clean air and water, resilient infrastructure, and affordable, accessible renewable energy.
Our legislators stood with us last spring when they passed the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act. Let’s make sure they do it again, and fund climate justice in this year’s budget and beyond.
Those interested in carpooling, email Lale at email@example.com and meet in the church parking lot Friday, Feb. 28 at 9:15 a.m.
