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: https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/nyc-climate-bill_us_5c070847e4b0680a7ec9eea7?yon
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!
