We are honored to highlight two special honorees at our gala this year: Zazie Beetz and David Rysdahl. You may have heard of their names or seen them in productions such as the hit FX show Atlanta or Hulu movie No Exit. Or, if you are like me, you may have run into them at one of our climate rallies.
Don't forget to reserve your ticket to our gala!
We met Zazie and David during our campaign to pass Local Law 97—a bill that makes New York City buildings, which are the number one source of pollution in our city, cleaner and greener. Together, we won that campaign.
As David says, at the time, they were "brand new to local politics and the idea of lobbying was intimidating." But "NYCC made us feel like that was okay - the climate movement needs all of us embracing our amateur status as we move to create a better world."
Come celebrate our climate victories and support our climate organizing moving forward! Click here to get your ticket today!
Even if you are not in New York or unable to make the event, our work to tackle climate change has an impact everywhere in the world. Donate to support the work no matter where you are in the world!
We admire celebrity activists like Zazie and David who spread awareness wherever they go, and lift local campaigns on their global platforms. And we are so proud to recognize them for their commitment to building a better world alongside our other honorees.
Hope to see you there next Thursday!
