We need all hands on deck to make this a year of climate action. With the Climate and Community Investment Act, we have a chance to pass some of the most influential, impactful climate legislation in the country. Let’s make sure we grab it.
Here’s where you come in. What you can do:
1: Write a Letter! The media is one of the most important vehicles we can use to get the attention of legislators in Albany. That’s why NY Renews launched a grassroots effort to write letters to the editor (LTE) so that community leaders, reporters, and legislators know that we aren’t messing around when it comes to the CCIA! Letters to the editor (LTE) are SHORT 300 word pieces that ANYONE can publish. This is critical work, we need to get our message of jobs and justice out ASAP! NY Renews has you covered every step of the way with this CCIA letter to the editor toolkit – perfect for folks with and without experience.
