Come Stand With Us
(From Sierra Club) Right off the coast of Long Island lies one of the biggest untapped renewable energy resources in the country: offshore wind. The wind off our shores could power millions of homes and create thousands of jobs, making New York into an undisputed leader in the transition to clean energy. But it's only gonna happen if the Governor hears from us!
Promote Offshore Wind @ LIPA Meeting
Monday, March 21st @11am
333 Earle Ovington Bld. 4th Floor, Uniondale, NY
There will be a bus from NYC at 9:30. To get your tickets
LIPA wants to bring more power to the South Fork, and they’re trying to decide whether to supply it with dirty new gas peaker plants, or with affordable, job-creating offshore wind energy. It’s up to us to make sure the Governor and LIPA choose renewables over fossil fuels, for the sake of the climate and the economy. The March 21st LIPA board meeting will be the last chance to weigh in before a decision is made, and they’re inviting the public to testify.

The Fight for Energy Democracy
Tuesday, March 29
@7 - 9pm
388 Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn, New York 11217
Hosted by Brooklyn for Peace - WITH Sean Sweeney, Murphy Institute Professor and Trade Unions for Energy Democracy, and Kim Fraczek, Montrose 9 Resister and Sane Energy Project.
Fracking has been banned in New York State. There is a glut of oil and gas on the market. The price of fossil fuels has collapsed. Yet Big Energy is building more pipelines, compressor stations, storage facilities, and waste sites than ever before.
With the active connivance of government, the oil and gas corporations are leveling forests, seizing farmland, and threatening our water supply, binding us to an energy system that will ultimately kill us.
Come learn how workers, farmers, and ordinary people are fighting back to protect their families and the planet -- and how you can help build the growing resistance.
