24jan9:00 am4:00 pmDay of Action to Kick Fossil Fuels Out of Buildings

Event Details

Join leading climate groups from Buffalo to Long Island as we converge on Albany to demand that Governor Hochul and the legislature pass key climate legislation THIS YEAR to kick fossil fuels out of buildings.

Burning gas, oil, and propane in our homes and workplaces is bad for New Yorker’s wallets, harms our health, and is destroying the climate. We have solutions! We can transition to renewable heating and cooking and save New Yorkers money by enacting three important bills:

  • All-Electric Building Act (S6843C|A8431B of 2022)
  • Gas Transition and Affordable Energy Act (S8198|A9329 of 2022)
  • Energy Efficiency, Equity, and Jobs Act (S3126C|A3996C of 2022)

We will kick off the day with a rally and press conference in the State Capitol to push Governor Hochul to include these vital bills in her proposed budget. Then we will break into lobby teams (no prior lobbying experience necessary) to talk to our elected representatives and win their support for these important bills.
