NYC Climate Light Brigade – Light up the skyline!

  • Sunday, September 24, 2017  – New Date!

    Can you help us light up the NY skyline with messages of resistance and climate action? We are organizing a Light Brigade to send a message to the NYC Comptroller Stringer to divest from destructive fossil fuel companies. More than $3 billion of public money is invested in the likes of Exxon, Chevron, BP and Enbridge.

    As we approach the 5th anniversary of Superstorm Sandy and watch with horror the destruction caused by Hurricanes Irma and Harvey, now, more than ever, we need New York City to be a climate leader. But NYC can’t do that if it continues to invest in climate destroyers.We need 30 people to come out and hold brightly lit signs produced by the NYC Light Brigade.

    It’ll be a fun, creative way of sending a serious message to NYC pension fund trustees which are meeting on Sept 20.  Kid Friendly!  And you’ll be helping to create dramatic and lasting images that’ll be used often in the lead up to a big march at the end of October.

    It’s time to #DivestNY!

    PLEASE RSVP by emailing us at 350nyc@gmail.com and include your phone number. Feel free to recruit friends!

    PLEASE NOTE: MEET ON THE BEACH
