Sierra Club’s new President Aaron Mair will be joining activists from upstate who will speak about their experiences fighting coal plants in their communities. Aaron is a long-time advocate for environmental justice in low-income communities upstate, and is excited to connect with climate/justice activists in the city to begin a statewide conversation on what it will take to transition New York permanently off coal as a first step to getting off all fossils.
Starts at 7pm with some informal networking time, followed by a panel discussion and open-format Q&A discussion.
