We are excited that our long-awaited Fossil Free NYC Open House will take place in just over a week. We are building a movement to shift investment away from the big fossil fuel companies and we need your voice and your action to make this a truly effective campaign. Please RSVP to let us know you plan to join us and help us spread the word.


RSVP to the Open House and learn more ( about the Fossil Free NYC divestment campaign on the 350NYC website. Please share this email and our Facebook invitation to the event with your friends.


On February 26th, join 350NYC and partners for an Open House to launch a fossil fuel divestment campaign in New York City. One by one, cities around the world are making the commitment to divest from fossil fuels and we want New York City to be a leader in this effort. Come learn what this important movement means for our communities, get the latest news on what’s happening with the city campaign, and how you and your organization can help create a Fossil Free NYC. Join with us to become part of the solution for a sustainable future for all.


If it’s wrong for coal, oil and gas companies to wreck the climate, then it’s wrong for NYC to profit from that wreckage. You can take action right now to send a message and influence our elected leaders. Sign the divestment petition to Comptroller Scott Stringer and learn about the Fossil Free NYC Campaign


Event is free and open to the public. RSVP encouraged but not required.


“It is clear that cities and local governments – whose citizens will bear the brunt of impacts from the climate crisis – should refuse to financially benefit from fossil fuels and should seriously consider the future volatility of those assets. We shouldn’t be funding our retirement by investing in companies whose operations ensure we won’t have a safe planet to retire on.” -Mayor’s Innovation Project
