Long Island is on the frontline of climate change. From coastal erosion to ocean acidification and aquifer saltwater intrusion, our communities face an uncertain future without bold action to mitigate and adapt to the threat of climate change. With regression at the federal level, real climate action will come from states like New York.
In our state, we have the opportunity to enact bold climate legislation that puts people and planet first through NY Renews, an unprecedented statewide coalition of 100+ organizations fighting for climate policies grounded in equity and justice for communities and working people. We are community-based organizations, environmental justice groups, labor unions, faith-based organizations, and other advocates working together to ensure New York achieves ambitious and far-reaching climate solutions.
This talk reviewed the efforts of NY Renews and the Long Island Progressive Coalition to ensure a just transition for Long Island communities away from an extractive fossil fuel economy towards an economy that is regenerative, resilient, and sustainable.
