Tell New York Legislators to Support NY Renews!
SIGN THE PETITION HERE
"The impacts of climate change are hitting low-income communities and communities of color first and worst. Rachel Rivera is a mother, a Brooklyn resident, a member of NY Communities for Change, and a Superstorm Sandy survivor.
After the storm destroyed Rachel’s roof, she was forced to move her family into a shelter. Struggling to pay for the damage and keep her family safe, Rachel’s family spent three years in the shelter system. Her daughter still cries when it rains.
Tell NY State Legislators to support the NYRenews platform for good jobs and healthy communities, with 100% clean and renewable energy.
In New York, both upstate and downstate, we know firsthand the repercussions of inequality and climate change and we have the solutions. NY state legislators have paid lip service to investing in our communities and fighting climate change. Now is the time to demand action.
That's why an unprecedented coalition of New Yorkers created the NYRenews platform - to hold politicians accountable for investing in our communities, our environment, and our economy.
NYRenews is demanding what New Yorkers need most: good paying jobs, healthier communities, and environmental justice, all through 100% clean and renewable energy for all of New York State by 2050.
Tell NY State Legislators to support the NYRenews platform for good jobs and healthy communities, with 100% clean and renewable energy."
