The People’s Hearing on Climate

February 27, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

On Wednesday, February 7th, people from across New York will descend on Albany to demand Governor Cuomo commit to funding an equitable transition to 100% renewable energy by making corporate polluters pay for the damage they’re doing to our health and our planet.


Governor Cuomo’s recent executive budget doesn’t go nearly far enough. So we’ll be having a People’s Hearing, concurrent to the official budget hearings, to call on Governor Cuomo to pass the Climate and Community Protection Act for 100% renewable energy and to implement a fee on big polluters to fund the transition. Then we’ll march to Governor Cuomo’s office to give him a giant $7.1 billion check–the exact amount he’s leaving on the table by failing to commit to a climate polluter fee.

This is a critical opportunity to put direct pressure on the Governor, raise our profile in Albany, and lift up our campaign in the media. Plus, everyone who comes will get an NYRenews Tshirt. See you on February 7th!


We request that folks coming on their own, for example by car please register. This way, you can get last minute information on the event.
