350Brooklyn works to advance climate legislation in New York State as members of the New York Renews coalition, and in cooperation with other groups and coalitions such as the Movement for the Green New Deal in New York State. We support a just transition to 100% renewable energy, push to ban the construction of all new fossil fuel infrastructure, and support taxing polluters to support a just transition.
At the federal level 350Brooklyn works to advance genuinely effective climate legislation in Washington that supports climate justice through our partnership with the Climate Crisis Policy network. Working with CCP, we participate in its Adopt-A-District program that focuses on persuading individual Members of Congress to support significant climate legislation.
The Legislation Workgroup organizes town halls, meets with legislators, canvasses in our neighborhoods, researches legislation, makes phone calls, writes letters, posts in social media, bird-dogs, and does everything we can to get our elected officials to take bold climate action. Join us!
