NY Renews is a coalition of more than 150 grassroots, state, and national organizations. We aim to make New York State the nation’s leader in tackling the climate crisis while protecting workers and lifting up communities.
We’re fighting for:
Create thousands of clean energy jobs throughout New York state.
Support low-income communities disproportionately hurt by climate change with revenue generated by a fee to polluters.
100% Clean & Renewable Energy
Foster a transition to 100% clean, renewable energy by 2050 with a benchmark goal of 50% by 2030.
Advocate for economic justice in the transition to a 100% clean energy economy that puts workers and families first.
POINTS OF UNITY
These are the principles that guide our work
Member organizations agree to support the Jemez Principles (how we organize), our Points of Unity (what we stand for) and our legislative platform (what we want to achieve).
We believe that fighting climate change requires that we center values of justice and equity, both as an ethical imperative and a strategic advantage.
