SIERRA CLUB CLEAN ENERGY CAMPAIGN KICK-OFF MEETING
Unitarian Universalist Church of Buffalo Alliance Room
695 Elmwood Ave, Buffalo
Dirty fuels like coal and gas put WNY families at risk. Not only do they pollute our air, but it also contributes to asthma and climate change. The great news is that WNY can be a leader in clean energy. We’re starting to use our historic manufacturing base as an example of what is possible in a clean energy future, but we can do a lot more. All we need is for Gov. Cuomo to step up and be a hero for renewable energy. You can help make that happen!
So please join us at our Kick-Off Meeting on Wednesday, January 29th at 7:00pm to learn more about the campaign and how you can help. With enough people involved, we can introduce new clean energy programs for the state of New York, making our transition to clean energy possible!
RSVP welcomed but not necessary – firstname.lastname@example.org – and bring a friend!
