Fighting Against Climate Change and for Environmental Justice

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Climate change is among the greatest threats to our future - worldwide and in our nation and state. Storms have ravaged the New York metro area, Long Island and upstate New York. Proposals to build and expand oil and gas infrastructure threaten the health and safety of countless rural, suburban and urban New Yorkers. This participatory workshop will review the basics of climate change and provide a landscape of the campaigns in New York fighting climate change and for climate justice. We’ll also have an open discussion about how groups across the state can help build this critical and growing movement.
