From our friends with the WNY Youth Climate Council:
We demand climate justice for everyone.
Join the WNY Youth Climate Council on
Friday, September 20
2:00pm – 5:00pm in Niagara Square, Buffalo
Demand that our elected officials declare a climate emergency!
Take action immediately!
Involve the youth, the elders and all the people of the region!
Set priorities to shift to renewable energy, and preserve and protect our water and bioregion.
Declare and Confront the Climate Emergency !
WE the undersigned, the youth of Western New York,
call on the Erie County Legislature and the Buffalo Common Council to officially declare a Climate Emergency
and take strong, decisive action in pulling us back from devastating climate instability.
We urge you to dramatically accelerate the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy
through the creation of green jobs and by avoiding legislative and bureaucratic impediments to this goal.
The future of our environment and our communities depends on our actions.
We urge you to push this initiative forward with urgency, as our planet is on fire and our future is in doubt.
