350.org on historic #ClimateMobilizationAct passing: “unprecedented leap toward a Green New Deal for New York”

New York, NY — Hours before a march to stop the Williams pipeline, the New York City Council passed some of the strongest climate justice legislation in the country, dubbed the #ClimateMobilizationAct.

Led by Council Speaker Corey Johnson, Councilmember Costa Constantinides and grassroots groups New York Communities for Change (NYCC), ALIGN-NY, and Working Families Party (WFP), the broad and sweeping legislation is recognized as a #GreenNewDeal4NY. It includes the single largest cut of climate pollution by a municipality anywhere in the world while creating tens of thousands of good jobs, and nearly unanimous opposition to the Williams fracked gas pipeline.

On the passing of this legislation, Tamara Toles O’Laughlin, 350.org North America Director, said:

“This legislation passing is a monumental and unprecedented leap toward a Green New Deal for New York. This bold package of bills serve as a vivid reminder that communities at the frontlines of the climate crisis are already, and must continue to be, at the forefront of solutions. New York is shaping up to be a model for real climate leadership for the rest of the country and world.”
