Green New Deal & Legislation

350Brooklyn’s Federal Green New Deal campaign strives to build public support while targeting Senators and members of Congress to back a just transition to a 100% renewable energy economy with sustainable infrastructure, and to refuse fossil fuel contributions. 

350Brooklyn also works to advance ambitious climate legislation in New York State. We are members of the New York Renews Coalition and the Movement for the Green New Deal in New York State. We support a just transition to 100% renewable energy with equity provisions which prioritize front line communities and workers. We push to ban all fossil fuel infrastructure and public power, and support taxing the 1% and polluters to fund the transition. We organize town halls, legislator meetings, canvassing, bird-dogging, sit-ins, and do everything we can to get our politicians to tackle the climate crisis. Join us!
