Zero Hour NYC is a coalition of city students dedicated to combating climate change and furthering a sustainable future. We are frustrated with how special interest politics have stymied legislative progress toward environmental and social justice. Reliance on dirty energy is not only putting people’s future at risk, but also their present. As extreme weather and natural disasters occur more frequently around the world, we are seeing the emergence of a new climate refugee crisis and an unprecedented scarcity of resources. Now is not the time for silence; now is the time for action. If lawmakers won’t lead the way on their own, us students are ready to push them.
The Zero Hour NYC march on July 21st will forever be engrained in NY history as one of the most powerful statements made by a youth-led movement. Thank you to all the people involved for fighting with us. We have big plans for our continuing movement: On September 6th, 2018, we will rise for climate, jobs, and justice in partnership with the RISE movement. On September 29th and 30th, we will be participating in the Forward Union Social Action Fair. These events are just the beginning of our growing movement.
With your support, Zero Hour NYC will continue to prosper. The youth will continue to lead the fight for our climate.
