GreenHomeNYC February Forum: Climate Action Movements
Please join GreenHomeNYC at this month’s Forums event for a panel discussion + Q&A to learn more about these climate action movements guiding the climate change agenda forward.
Just two months after Donald Trump withdrew from the Paris Agreement, President Joe Biden re-joined and subsequently unveiled an ambitious climate change mitigation plan. This stark political u-turn was partially made possible by pressure from climate action movements.
Climate action movements both old and new have been organizing for years to elect progressive candidates, shape the agenda, and pass legislation. They knock on doors to for politicians, write detailed recommendations for legislation, and organize phonebanks to lobby representatives.
How effective are these movements? What are their goals and who can get involved? These are just some of the questions that will be addressed by our panel of climate action movement leaders. Join us!
In addition to the forum, our monthly volunteer orientation will take place right before the event, starting at 6p. If you’re interested in joining GreenHomeNYC as a volunteer, please review opportunities on our website, and register for a monthly orientation on Eventbrite.
