SATURDAY, OCTOBER 28 SUPERSTORM SANDY FIVE YEAR COMMEMORATION: More than 100 environmental, union, community and cultural organizations will gather, rally and march.
Communities across the city will remember, resist, and rise together.
Five years ago, Superstorm Sandy took lives, destroyed homes, and flooded subways. Like in Florida, Texas, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, the people hit hardest by Sandy were the poor, people of color, immigrants, and our already most vulnerable communities.
New York’s elected officials must protect us from the impacts of climate change and lead a just transition to a renewable energy economy. We cannot wait any longer. On October 28th, we will assemble and march over the Brooklyn Bridge, and then rally at the Alfred E. Smith Houses in Manhattan.
On October 28th, let’s march to demand a better future.
