Mothers and caregivers across New York are advocating together to ensure a livable climate for all children.
Our movement is led by local teams of dedicated volunteers. Local teams come together to learn, set goals, meet with decision-makers, testify at hearings, and plan events like rallies and house parties to engage new people. Our local teams welcome volunteers at all levels, whether you have a little time or a lot.
Everyone can create a sustainable future for all children!
Campaigns for Climate and Community Investment Act (CCIA) & NY Off Gas
The Call To Action
The people of New York, including volunteers with Mothers Out Front, have effectively organized to make the state a leader in addressing the climate crisis. Fracking was banned in the state in 2014 and made permanent in 2020. One of the most aggressive greenhouse gas reduction goals in the nation was set in New York with the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA).
To successfully implement the CLCPA, New York needs funding and to accelerate the required just transition off fossil fuels. Mothers Out Front New York is well positioned to provide much needed grassroots power if we:
- pass the Climate and Community Investment Act (CCIA)- This Act raises $15 billion per year from corporate polluters and uses it to create, good, green jobs, invest in frontline communities, and build a renewable economy for New York State.
- get #NYOffGas- Stop investing in gas infrastructure, fund renewable solutions, and enact an equitable plan for dismantling existing gas distribution as mandated by the CLCPA.
Our Plan of Action
- contact NY legislators to cosponsor and pass the CCIA.
- testify at utility hearings and submit comment to the NY Public Service Commission to plan for utilities’ phase out of fossil fuels and develop renewable energy infrastructure.
