Nothing we face over the next decade will be more important to address than our growing climate crisis.

Everything we do must have climate policies woven into it, whether it's affordable housing or public transportation or education.

  • Implement a full Green New Deal for NYC to create quality, good paying, green jobs with union benefits and protections.

  • Defend low income communities and communities of color from bearing the brunt of all types of pollution.

  • Advocate for a climate resiliency plan that addresses all 5 boroughs' most vulnerable coastlines.

  • Fight to reduce our carbon footprint through more pedestrian and bike friendly streets.
