Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the march. The march may be over, but the work of creating a better future is just beginning. Here are some ways that you can help keep up the momentum. Take the next steps:
Grassroots leadership in Puerto Rico has developed a set of demands in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. We support the demands in the Just Recovery and Relief Aid Package – sign here to show your support.
Mayor Bill de Blasio
We need the Mayor to get Sandy Survivors back in their homes, make much needed repairs to damaged buildings, create renewable energy jobs and fully divest New York City’s pension funds from fossil fuels.
Governor Andrew Cuomo
We need Governor Cuomo to pass the NYRenews policy platform and commit New York to 100% renewable energy. Sign here to join the campaign
Senator Charles Schumer
We need Senator Schumer to stop Trump’s disastrous agenda – call him and ask him to fully fund the EPA, block McConnell’s dirty energy bill, and support legislation for 100% renewable energy. Call him at 212-486-4430
With the ongoing crisis in Puerto Rico we are compelled to address this issue as well. Under the umbrella of a Just Recovery and Relief Aid Package for Puerto Rico, grassroots leadership on the island has developed a set of demands in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. We support the call for massive funding to deal with the deadly shortages of water, food, medicines and other necessities. In addition, we support the demands in the full Just Recovery and Relief Aid Package that would put the island on the path toward regenerative energy, economic democracy, food sovereignty, control over land use, and community autonomy.
If you are not able to participate in the whole day that is fine and we welcome you to either come to the pre-march rally in Cadman Plaza Park or the closing event at Smith Houses. (See details above.)
What To Wear and What To Bring
On October 28th, New Yorkers will come together to remember the lives lost and the damage incurred from Sandy. And we will do more than remember: we will demand our representatives go beyond the small steps they’ve taken so far, and champion bold and immediate climate action towards a just transition.
In solidarity with those who lost family members, homes, incomes, and security to Superstorm Sandy, we make the following demands of New York’s elected officials:
After the march, groups across New York City and beyond will be remembering Superstorm Sandy, honoring those whose lives were impacted and honoring the resilience of our communities. Join us in a neighborhood near you:
