Join us in Albany to Call for 100% Renewables & Green Jobs

On June 1st, WE ACT and NY Renews—a statewide coalition—will gather in Albany to send a strong, clear message to our elected officials:
  • It is time for bold action to move New York State to 100% renewable energy. 
  • It is time for dynamic leadership to carry out a just transition of our state’s economy.
  • It is time to listen to the voices of the frontline as we shape a new energy economy.
WE ACT will provide a bus leaving from our offices (1854 Amsterdam Ave) at 7:30AM on Wednesday, June 1st so that you can tell legislators face to face that climate change will hit our communities the hardest and we’ve had enough! We will return at approximately 8PM to WE ACT. Will you join us on June 1st and demand better for New York and our community? RSVP Below!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is the goal of the rally and NYRenews?

A coalition of New York State-based groups came together to create the NYRenews platform. NYRenews' goal is to minimize the way ALL New Yorkers feel the effects of climate change through a comprehensive statewide switch to 100% clean renewable energy by 2050. NYRenews has outlined an equitable transition that keeps people employed and that opens up the green jobs market for more New Yorkers. We ALL deserve better and it’s time we make sure Albany knows it!  

What other ways can I take action on climate change with WE ACT?

Since 2015, WE ACT has been leading a community-based planning process to address the environmental justice impacts of climate change. The Northern Manhattan Climate Action Plan (NMCA) seeks increase renewable energy and green jobs, among other projects that will build social equity along with stopping severe environmental and economic damage among vulnerable areas.
