Our Climate Solutions Town Hall on Tuesday was a huge success! A packed house had a clear message for our legislators: they must lead on climate. Stay tuned for more detailed report on the event.
The refrain of the evening was this: we must organize and demand change, because corporations and politicians won’t change on their own. That’s why we need you at these upcoming events to keep the pressure up:
This Saturday, communities across the city will remember, resist, and rise together. Join fellow New Yorkers in a march to remember the lives lost and the damage caused by Sandy. We’ll let Mayor de Blasio, Governor Cuomo, and Senator Schumer that we can’t wait for action any longer.
We’ll meet at the western edge of Cadman Plaza, near Pineapple Street. Look for our Slay the Fossil Fuel Monster banner! Then we’ll march across the Brooklyn Bridge together.
When: Tuesday, October 31
Where: Meet at at 14th Street and 7th Avenue at 6:15pm
It’s a 350Brooklyn tradition! We’ll hoist up our pipeline monster and our 350Brooklyn banner and march down 7th Avenue. We’ll join with Artichoke Dance Company who will be parading in their signature plastic bag costumes to draw attention to the damage wrought by plastic waste. Come join in some serious fun!
When: Thursday, November 9, 7:30 pm
Where: Brooklyn Commons, 388 Atlantic Avenue.
Looking past the hype, the bloviating, and the tweeting, what impact has Trump’s election actually had?

The Sabin Center tracks Congressional legislation and presidential decisions that bear on climate change. Join us for a great discussion of climate change on the national stage
