“Long Island is home to over 7 million people and is at tremendous risk for disaster due to climate change. I am reaching out because this past year, Long Island decision-makers failed us. Long Island legislators failed to pass the Climate and Community Investment Act that promised to fund climate mitigation and invest in frontline communities of color. And our power authority failed to invest in public power that would benefit us all while ignoring public outcry against the mismanagement of PSEG after Tropical Storm Isaias.
As a community, we must come to strategize and take action, because our legislators have proven they won’t do so alone.
On September 20th, at 6:30 will be hosting our first meeting since our summer recess. This is a great meeting for new or interested members since we will be doing a review of the past year and strategizing for the future. We will be planning our next steps in pursuing public power on Long Island and getting the CCIA passed in New York State.”

Please join us for our second annual Climate Jobs Summit on Tuesday, September 21, 2021.
This year’s Climate Jobs Summit, happening during Climate Week NYC, will convene climate jobs coalitions, labor leaders, union climate activists, environmental and environmental justice advocates, clean-energy developers, policymakers, scientists, and allies in our shared mission to build an equitable renewable energy economy powered by good union jobs.
With speakers and participants from the labor and climate movements, the Summit presents a unique opportunity to dismantle the false “climate versus jobs” narrative and rally critical support for investment in infrastructure, jobs, and tackling climate change among labor leaders, climate advocates, and progressive thought leaders.
Throughout the Summit, we will emphasize the urgency of taking action to lift up America’s working families through bold climate investments that create millions of family-sustaining union careers.
The Summit is sponsored by the Climate Jobs National Resource Center (CJNRC), the CJNRC Action Fund, Climate Jobs New York (CJNY), the CJNY Education Fund, and the Worker Institute and the Lois Gray Labor Innovation Initiative at Cornell University’s ILR School.

After a year of crisis, ALIGN: The Alliance for a Greater New York is celebrating our communities’ resilience and our achievements in rebuilding together! We’re excited to announce a new date for the 2021 ALIGN Movement Builders Awards: Tuesday, September 21st at 6 PM!
Since March 2020, New Yorkers have been facing unprecedented challenges: a global pandemic and the ongoing climate crisis that helped create it and worsen its impact; the resulting job loss and economic downturn; and racial injustice that has resulted in Black and brown communities disproportionately feeling the impacts of these intersecting health, economic, and climate crises.
This year, we hold the MBAs to honor the outstanding leaders who have been at the forefront of the fight for economic and climate justice throughout the pandemic. We have been proud to work with our honorees to defend and expand workers’ rights and address the impact of COVID-19 and climate change on our communities. We hope you can join us this September to recognize our honorees and reflect on the trials and victories of the past two years.
Mark your calendars!
Tuesday, September 21, 2021 from 6–8:30 PM
Stay tuned for more details. Until then, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Hope to see you soon!
