NYC rapid response to Trump’s Anti-Climate Executive Order
New York, NY -- Just days after approving the highly opposed Keystone XL pipeline, the Trump Administration is issuing an executive order rescinding the Obama-era Clean Power Plan and key climate protections. This most catastrophic assault on our climate and communities is the latest in a slew of all-out attacks on people and planet. New Yorkers are uniting against Trump’s dangerous agenda, which runs counter to public health, justice, and science.

NY Renews, People's Climate Movement, and Resist Here organized a rapid response action outside Trump Tower in Fifth Avenue, New York. About 200 people stood in the rain to rally and march from there to Gov. Cuomo's office on 3rd Avenue.

New Yorkers are calling on Governor Cuomo and New York elected officials to step up in this moment of crisis, stand up to the administration’s climate denial, and make New York a true beacon of safety and security by leading the country with bold action.

With Trump regressing at the federal level, real climate action will come from states like New York. Gov. Cuomo must step up and be a real leader in the fight against climate change. He needs to eliminate climate pollution, protect frontline communities, and spark a revolution in good, green, union jobs.

Climate change is already devastating communities across the globe, from Bangladesh to the Rockaways, often impacting low-income communities, communities of color, and workers first and worst. Trump's climate denial is racist, classist, and insane.

Last Friday, over 300 of you came out to Trump Hotel to respond to the Keystone XL announcement, and over a hundred people marched all the way to Gov. Cuomo's office to call on him to lead in this moment of crisis.
