GreenNewDeal4NYC Lobby Day

December 11, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm

From our partners: Join us to lobby councilmembers to pass Intro 1253, the historic, first-of-its-kind legislation that cuts NYC climate pollution at the scale of the crisis and create thousands of good jobs.

We’ll get a briefing from experts on the bill and provide you with training on how to lobby from 9:30 – 10:30am. We’ll provide you with materials, too. From 10:30 to as long as you can stay (but not longer than about 3pm), we will split up to hit meetings and/or track down Councilmembers as they head into a full Council meeting, which is scheduled to start at 1:30pm.

You do not need to be an expert to do this!

This is about regular people who want climate/jobs/justice action urging Councilmembers, particularly their own Councilmembers, to pass the bill. Read about this historic bill here, and you will see why this is a must-pass for NYC and a moment for worldwide leadership:

It’s going to take a full-court press on our elected representatives to make sure they listen to the people and not to the real estate industry and its lobbyists!

Join us!
