Fight for our Future: New York Youth Climate Leaders' Lobby Day As 2020 draws to an end, New York State is presented
Fight for our Future: New York Youth Climate Leaders’ Lobby Day
As 2020 draws to an end, New York State is presented with enormous and unprecedented challenges. The COVID-19 pandemic has taken tens of thousands of lives, the state government faces a $14.5 billion budget shortfall, and New York has still done little to combat the climate crisis. In order to recover from the pandemic and address the climate crisis, we must stop funding the fossil fuel industry, tax the wealthy, and create a Green New Deal for New York State.
We’re kicking off our campaign for economic and environmental justice in 2021 with a lobby day on January 11th. During this event, we will meet with key politicians from across the state to discuss and demand comprehensive climate legislation. The entire lobby day will be conducted over Zoom and we can adjust individual lobby schedules to avoid conflicts that participants may have. The upcoming legislative session will be critical for achieving economic and environmental justice for New York State, and your participation in this event will help us start the session off strong.
