As always, come early to mingle with your fellow 350Brooklyners!
Are you a parent feeling the urgency over climate change but lacking
the time to do much about it? Do you have a child who’s asking what they
can do to fight for a greener future? 350Brooklyn Families is for you!
We are creating 350Brooklyn Families to make it
possible for more families to get involved through child-friendly
actions and events. We plan to organize a kick-off meeting on a weekend
very shortly. In the meantime we hope you can join us for our first
action on March 15th – the Williams Pipeline rally and press conference.
Read more below.
But shouldn’t my children be in school? Well actually…on March 15th
there is also a nationwide school strike planned as youth across the
country push for more climate action from our government. Since there is
one at 12pm at City Hall, right after the Williams press conference, we
plan to stick around for that. Learn more about that below.
Please join us for either event or both. No time to make a sign? Just
show up! Got a kid who loves crafting signs? Bring a spare!

Friday, March 15 is shaping up to be a big day on the Climate Activism
front in New York City.
At 11 am, the Stop the Williams Pipeline Coalition will
have a rally and press conference at City Hall. In December the
coalition delivered a petition opposing the pipeline signed by 210 New
York climate, labor, civic, and religious organizations to Governor
Cuomo. In January, we brought petitions signed by over 14,000
individuals to Albany. And now we have a letter signed by more than
three dozen of our elected officials urging Governor Cuomo on behalf of
their constituents to STOP THIS PIPELINE! Join in and shout out your
opposition to the Williams pipeline!
At 12 noon at City Hall, the
Youth Climate Strike
will hold a rally. This is part of the nationwide school strike by young
people to push for more rapid action on climate change. The City Hall
rally is one of several all over the city, including one at 2 pm at
Columbus Circle. Check out the
Youth Climate Strike
website for details of other rallies across the city.
And then at 6 pm, 350Brooklyn will join the community group
UPROSE who will lead a demonstration against a rezoning
proposal for Sunset Park. For years, Uprose has been leading the fight
for a waterfront that would be the center of renewable energy with good
green jobs in NYC. Meet at 36th Street and 4th
Avenue in Brooklyn.
