Overcoming those responsible for Brooklyn's blackouts and the path towards a Green New Deal.
This summer, during the midst of a record heat-wave, Con Edison created a preemptive blackout for Southern Brooklyn, leaving thousands without power. At the same time, Con Edison has proposed to raise their rates while locking the public into $200 million of new fossil fuel infrastructure. As the climate crisis accelerates and our borough becomes more susceptible to climate disasters, it is time to have all options on the table in the fight for a Green New Deal.
On October 7, join Brooklyn College's Department of Urban Sustainability and New York City DSA for a Public Power Town Hall. At this event community members, elected officials, and grassroots activists will be able to share their experiences with Con Ed, and hear from the Public Power NYC (publicpower.nyc) campaign about the call for a 100% Renewable, Democratically Controlled, Publicly Owned Utility for New York.
The event will be hosted in Brooklyn College Library (Room 150, Woody Tanger Auditorium)!
