JUNE Newsletter

In May, New Yorkers with 350NYC and allies got tough on fossil fuels. On May 11th we marched from Bryant Park to the Waldorf Astoria to greet President Obama, and demonstrate that our future must be driven by renewable energy and not by dangerous fossil fuel pipelines like the Keystone XL. On May 14th we continued our campaign against the Keystone XL pipeline with a rally at the Council on Foreign Relations to greet Canadian Prime Minister Harper.
  
And now as Spring turns into Summer, our campaigns are heating up. Join us in June as we grow the movement, and get involved in our campaigns to divest from fossils fuels, protect New York from fracking, and stop the development of new fossil fuel pipelines.
