Last month, we won a huge victory when New York City and State committed to divesting their pension funds from fossil fuels. Not only that, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio launched a lawsuit against the top fossil fuel companies for the damage climate change has caused the people of New York.
New York’s decision was a turning point in the fight against the fossil fuel industry–and it was a victory won through years of sustained local campaigning. This is what the power of the people looks like.
That’s why this year, we’re launching Fossil Free: a people-powered push to pass resolutions stopping new fossil fuel projects and demanding a fast and just transition to 100% renewable energy for all in cities and towns across the U.S.
We need your support to power our campaigns for a fossil free world. Please watch my short video about our plans and why you should support 350.org’s work:
With your help, we can win more victories like the one in New York, and build the fossil free world we need.
