As part of the Superstorm Sandy fifth anniversary week of action, 350Brooklyn and Brooklyn College Urban Sustainability Program invite you to our upcoming Town Hall on climate change. The Climate Solutions Town Hall on October 24th is an important opportunity to demand that our state legislators provide meaningful leadership and take aggressive measures to address the crisis of global warming.
Our panel includes representatives from New York Renews, the New York City Environmental Justice Alliance, Turn the Tide and Sean Sweeney, Director of the CUNY International Program for Labor, Climate and Environment. All State Senators and Assembly Members representing Brooklyn are invited, and we look forward to engaging them in this critical conversation.
As Trump succeeds daily in his war on the environment--dismantling regulations that safeguard the land, water and air, protecting the fossil fuel industry and accelerating climate change--states must take action and our representatives must be held accountable. Rising temperatures, devastating storms, and increased flooding are all major problems in Brooklyn and New York State, and will only get worse as we continue to heat the planet. Join us in urging our elected officials to build resiliency in our communities, and make New York a global leader in the fight against climate change. On the 5th anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, we put our state politicians on notice: engage for change!

In September, Congress is scheduled to vote on the budget -- and the Environmental Protection Agency is on the chopping block. Join this rally on September 14 in calling on Senator Schumer to oppose any and all cuts to the EPA budget.
Donald Trump and the Congressional Majority are proposing massive cuts to the EPA budget, which would undermine its ability to protect our water, air and climate. As the nation's most powerful Democrat, we need Schumer to draw a line in the sand and use his authority to block any EPA budget cuts.

Even in these already-challenging times, recent days have been especially difficult ones: watching neo-Nazis on the march, domestic terror claim the life of Heather Heyer, a synagogue under siege, and the repeated moral failure of Donald Trump to stand up for the most basic American values.
The question for us, after Charlottesville, is what we will do? So we hope you’ll join us for the next #GetOrganizedBK meeting on Wednesday, Sept 13th. There will be an INBK working group meeting, too.
Note: Due to construction at Congregation Beth Elohim, we'll be across Garlfield Pl in the Ballroom which only seats 500. PLEASE RSVP if you'd like to attend: RSVP HERE

For the September 12 Hacknight, leaders from Indivisible groups in New York (including from INBK!) tell their stories, the actions they’re doing locally, and how technologists can help amplify the amazing work on the ground. Indivisible’s mission is to fuel a progressive grassroots network of local groups to resist the regressive agenda of the current administration.
Indivisible has engaged with techies and harnessed their energy to create applications that mobilize and engage. OurAmendments.org showed how the ObamaCare repeal could affect the lives of millions of Americans. Their “Act Locally” map provides an easy to access way of finding a nearby group for people who want to be involved, and their website was built by an amazing group of super volunteers with great eyes for design.
Civic and Progressive Hacking starts right after the speakers, which will end at around 8:00 pm. As always food and drink will be available, so please RSVP so we know how many pizzas we need to get! We are excited to see you all!
