We won a huge victory in New York State when fracking was banned in New York State in December, 2014. Since then we have continued our efforts to mobilize the Jewish community to work for a world safe from climate change.
In July, 2016, we participated in the March for Clean Energy in Philadelphia.
Shortly after the March we affiliated with Jewish Climate Action Network. Our NYC chapter meets monthly and is currently supporting two important campaigns:
First, the campaign against the Pilgrim Pipelines, which are proposed to bring North Dakota fracked oil from Albany, NY, to Linden, NJ.
And second, the campaign in support of bringing off-shore wind generation to New York.
JCAN NYC is also a member of the NYRenews Coalition fighting for good jobs and climate justice with 100% renewable energy for NYS.
