Saturday, October 28, 11am

Five years ago, Superstorm Sandy took lives, destroyed homes, and flooded subways. Like in Florida, Texas, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, the people hit hardest by Sandy were the poor, people of color, immigrants, and our already most vulnerable communities.

New York’s elected officials must protect us from the impacts of climate change and lead a just transition to a renewable energy economy. We cannot wait any longer. On October 28th, we will assemble and march over the Brooklyn Bridge, and then rally at the Alfred E. Smith Houses on the lower east side in Manhattan.

On October 28th, let’s march to demand a better future.

The PSC, working through its Environmental Justice Committee, is one of the endorsers of this march and rally,
