At least seven state legislators have already committed to attend our October 24 Town Hall. This is an important opportunity for Brooklynites to tell them we are serious about climate change, and they must provide serious leadership and take aggressive measures to address the crisis of global warming.
The event, a partnership with Brooklyn College Urban Sustainability Program, takes place on October 24 at 7pm at the Brooklyn Brooklyn College Student Center, 2705 Campus Road (view map). There will be students, activists, concerned citizens, climate leaders, and you.
Here are a few more things you can do right now to help get the word out:
With an unprecedented storm sweeping through Ireland, Puerto Rico still struggling to recover from Hurricane Maria, and California recovering from record breaking fires, we all know action is urgent.
Thus far, the following legislators have committed to attend: Assembly member Jo Anne Simon (D – Distr. 52); Sen. Diane Savino (D/IDC – Distr. 23); Sen. Roxanne Persaud (D – Distr. 19); Assembly member William Colton (D – Distr. 47); Sen. Jesse Hamilton (D/IDC – Dist. 20); Assistant Speaker Assembly member Félix Ortiz (D – Dist. 51); Assembly Member Robert Carroll (D – 44th Dist.).
