On December 14, Governor Cuomo is holding a fundraiser in Manhattan – and we’ll be outside, urging him to get New York off fossil fuels.

We’ll be calling on Governor Cuomo to walk the talk on climate change by stopping fossil fuel infrastructure and leading a transition to 100 percent renewable energy.

The fundraiser features special guests Bon Jovi and Bill Clinton, but we’ll be rocking our own rally for clean energy!

New York faces an onslaught of pipelines, power plants, and other projects that transport and burn fracked oil and gas, including the Williams pipeline, the Pilgrim pipelines, the CPV power plant, the Albany micro-grid and much more. Governor Cuomo must be a true climate leader by halting these dangerous projects and moving New York to 100 percent renewable energy.

We will be joined by housing affordability activists who will be calling on Cuomo to support housing policies that prioritize and deliver real affordability for the most economically vulnerable households.

Sponsors include NYC Democratic Socialists of America, New York Communities for Change, Food & Water Watch, Sane Energy Project, Empire State Indivisible, 350Brooklyn, Riverkeeper, Surfrider NYC, 350NYC, United for Action, NY Renews, and Three Parks Independent Democrats
