Each one of New York’s nearly 20 million residents deserves clean air and water, efficient and accessible transportation, safe housing, and healthy food – no matter their skin color, income, or zip code.

A Better NY

Each one of New York’s nearly 20 million residents deserves clean air and water, efficient and accessible transportation, safe housing, and healthy food.

But the fact is, New Yorkers are dealing with rampant pollution in our air and water – and extreme heat, devastating floods, and other climate impacts are making things worse.

And some of our neighbors are hurting more than others: A long history of racist public policies has disproportionately placed the burden of pollution, waste, and climate-related disasters on Black, Latino, Indigenous, and Asian and Pacific Islander communities.

We must do better.

Send a letter to your New York state and city leaders urging them to tackle the climate crisis and fight for environmental justice communities by slashing our reliance on fossil fuels, protecting New Yorkers from dangerous toxins, and cutting waste and supporting sustainable business practices.
