Join us for a discussion of the steps we need to take to win a sustainable future in New York and around the world.

In January, Mayor Bill de Blasio boldly announced that NYC will divest all public pension funds from fossil fuel investments and will also sue the five biggest fossil fuel companies for the damage they’re willfully done to our island city. This announcement is a huge victory for the climate justice movement, but what are the next steps? 

How can we secure the funding necessary to ensure a transition to renewable energy of the speed and scale that science tells us we need? And how can we ensure that this transition is just, and leaves no communities and workers behind? Join us for a discussion of the steps we need to take to win a sustainable future in New York and around the world.
