Join us for the NY Renews Press Conference and Lobby Day to Pass the Climate and Community Protection Act on Tuesday, June 6th!
Statewide Press conference: 10:45 West Capitol Park, Albany (between Swan St. and NYS Capitol Building)
Lobby Visits to Follow from 12 noon to 2 PM (Must pre-register with Bob Cohen)
Using the momentum from events like the massive April 29th Climate March on Washington, Citizen Action is working with other organizations in the Capital District to push the Governor and the Legislature to act on climate before the end of the 2017 session through NY Renews, a dynamic statewide climate justice coalition. The main legislation we are supporting is the Climate and Community Protection Act (CCPA), which would mandate the elimination of climate pollution in the state by 2050, while protecting frontline communities, and ensuring fair labor standards for renewable energy jobs. Action by the states on climate action is critical, even more so given the announcement that President Trump pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement!
