Renewing New York: The Work Ahead
NY Renews, a statewide coalition of over 230 organizations, is in the forefront of innovative state-level climate legislation. 350Brooklyn is a proud member of this coalition, which pushed the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA) over the finish line in Albany in 2019. But passing legislation was just the first step. Under the CLCPA, a Climate Action Council (CAC) is now planning concrete steps to drive down greenhouse gas emissions across all sectors of the state’s economy. How do we ensure that the CAC does its job effectively and equitably? How will New York pay to train (and retrain) workers, protect vulnerable communities, and build an entirely new energy infrastructure? Come hear representatives of NY Renews, who will update us on where we stand and where we need to go next.
