    NY HEAT Albany Lobby Day March 13th

    Join WE ACT and multiple allied groups in Albany as we fight for NY HEAT in the state budget!

    The NY HEAT Act would cap energy bills at 6 percent of a household's income, which could save families that are overburdened by utility costs up to $75/month. The legislation would also stop allowing utility companies to charge the public to build out fossil fuel infrastructure that is polluting our planet, costing us hundreds of millions of dollars a year, and will quickly become obsolete as our state moves forward on its emission reduction goals. 

    There will be buses to transport us to and from Albany. More information on bus pick-up and drop-off locations pending.

    Beauty Justice Advocacy Fair - Binghamton

    Are you passionate about nontoxic makeup products, environmental justice, and advocating for safer personal care products?

    Join WE ACT for Environmental Justice for a fun beauty justice advocacy fair where you will learn about and take direct action to get rid of the harmful toxic chemicals found in our everyday personal care and beauty products (e.g. lotions, deodorant, hair straightener, cosmetics, etc.). This event is to show support for New York State’s Beauty Justice Bill which would ban many dangerous toxins (e.g. parabens, formaldehyde, lead, mercury, etc.) currently found in our everyday body, skin, and hair products.

    With every action you take at the fair: letter writing, making a testimony video, signing a petition, it will increase your chances to win free clean beauty and personal care products, and a same-day clean beauty makeover. Food and drinks will be provided. Local small businesses will have a booth to purchase nontoxic products. You will also get a chance to meet and speak with your state representatives.
