this video made for you by your fellow activists in the Mohawk Valley. 

Inspired?  Commit to three days of action starting today:

DAY 1:  April 22  50th EARTH DAY!
Sign up for Earth Day Live at https://strikewithus.org and tune in to some of the 72 Hour Livestream.

Join gofossilfree.org and Call State Comptroller to Urge him to Divest the NYS Pension Fund from Fossil FuelsCall Comptroller Tom DiNapoli at 518 474-4044.

You can also tweet him at @TomDiNapoli or @NYSComptroller. Script: “Please divest the NYS pension from fossil fuels. It is wrong to invest the pension fund in companies that are destroying the planet through global warming. And is increasingly a risky financial investment.  The state lost $500 million alone in its investment n Exxon last year.”

Day 3: April 24: VOTE CLIMATE
The third day of Earth Day Action is all about Voter Registration.  Contact everyone you know virtually and make sure they are registered!  State Board of Elections link with information on who is eligible to vote and a voter registration form that can be downloaded. https://www.elections.ny.gov/VotingRegister.html
