September Monthly Meeting: Special Guest Speaker, NY City Council Environmental Attorney Samara Swanston
Thursday, September 12 at 7:30pm
588 Atlantic Avenue (Boerum Hill)
Samara Swanston has been engaged in environmental law for more than twenty-five years, and is the Legislative Attorney for the Environmental Committee of the City Council that passed outstanding, landmark legislation this year. She litigated the largest environmental lawsuit in state history, and has drafted additional important environmental conservation and environmental justice law. This will be a rare opportunity to meet Ms. Swanston, get a better understanding of the inner workings of the City Council, learn how we can monitor the implementation of the recent Climate Mobilization Act, and much more.
We’ll also do some organizing and present updates. Come early to hang out with your fellow climate activists, meet with your campaign group, or have a beer or a bite to eat.
