    On June 26, Governor Cuomo is holding a fundraiser at the Plaza Hotel (768 5th Avenue, New York, New York 10019) – and we will be outside, calling on him to protect our climate and communities by leading a transition to 100% clean and sustainable energy.

    We will urge Cuomo to halt the bailout of upstate nuclear power plants, stop fossil fuel infrastructure, and be a real leader on clean and sustainable energy solutions.
