Date Friday 4/29/16
Where: Martin Luther King Center
AD: 615 Riverside Blvd, Long Beach, New York 11561
Join the Movement! Come see the award winning movie “Bag It” and learn about plastic pollution and your part in stopping it.
The new Josh Fox film, How to Let Go of the World and Love All The Things Climate Can’t Change, was moving and powerful. It was a full house and we met many new friends, Matt Kearns engaged with a powerful talk with fantastic audience participation!
Check out the tweet from LIPC, which got some major love and some famous retweeters as well!
Yesterday we had fun with the kids and parents at The Neighborhood School in the East Village, and we empowered them to remind Mayor DeBlasio that off shore wind is there and ready to cover all his needs for his own renewable energy commitments for NYC to become 100% renewable-powered.
dozens of these postcards went out to the mayor to remind him.
Postcards are available now for you to write and send to the LIPA board!
Let LIPA know you are in favor of off shore wind! We will have these at all events for the public to sign!!!
We have plenty, but they need to get to LIPA ASAP to make an impact and let them know the public supports OSW instead of new fossil fuels!!
Josh Fox continues in his deeply personal style, investigating climate change – the greatest threat our world has ever known. Traveling to 12 countries on 6 continents, the film acknowledges that it may be too late to stop some of the worst consequences and asks, what is it that climate change can’t destroy? What is so deep within us that no calamity can take it away? www.howtoletgomovie.com/
We hope you’ll join us for this event! Come and bring YOUR answer what YOU’RE fighting for that climate can’t change!
Are you seeing the bumper stickers and window clings around town? Tell us where!

Right now, our off shore wind public unity and education campaign is about to launch our second phase.
We will be sponsoring events and actions across Long Island, empowering people to become advocates for environmentally and fiscally responsible development of this incredible and readily available resource. We need your help and involvement to get the word out, to push our officials and our utility to adopt this, Let’s educate our friends, neighbors, children, parents and especially decision-makers, so we can move away from the dirty fossil fuels we use now, and into a comparatively impact-free way we can generate our electricity: from off shore wind.
Join our volunteer team kickoff meeting. We want your energy, ideas, and action to make this a success for all involved.
