Urge Governor Cuomo to veto the BYOBag Bill Moratorium
The NY State Assembly voted (by a disturbingly high majority) on Tuesday to institute a moratorium against the NYC Bring Your Own Bag law. Governor Cuomo is our last chance to take positive strides on reducing plastic bag waste in NYC. Contact Cuomo TODAY to urge him to veto the State moratorium!
You can also join a coalition of over 75 environmental advocates representing communities across New York City and State to stand with New City Council Members, State Senators and Assembly Members in a rally at 633 Third Ave, New York, NY at 6:30pm on February 9th.
Resist the Cabinet of Polluters
Join 575 former EPA employees in denouncing the President’s nominee to head the EPA. Scott Pruitt clearly has no interest in protecting the environment or enforcing environmental laws. Democratic Senators pushed hard to block Betsy DeVos as Education Secretary, but they need our support to push back on all of Trump’s unqualified appointees! Petition your Senators to resist climate change denial in the executive branch.
Stand with Standing Rock
The Army Corps of Engineers has hastily decided to grant the final easement to complete the Dakota Access Pipeline. We need to let them know that blithely putting millions of people at risk, steamrolling the interests of Indigenous Peoples, and sacrificing our clean energy future all for 35 permanent jobs is not a “deal” the American people are willing to make. Join a #NoDAPL action near you.
