Without our members, NYLCV’s work would not be possible
Whether they’re writing to state lawmakers, calling local officials, or attending our policy forums, NYLCV members help us get things done in Albany and in cities and towns all over New York. Here are some ways you can get involved to help us fight climate change, conserve land and water, and protect New Yorkers from toxic chemicals and pollution:
Write to your Legislators about important issues: NYLCV members raise the volume on environmental issues every day. Our 2016 victories–getting the lead out of school water, raising awareness about toxic triclosan in personal care products, and a fully funded Environmental Protection Fund, among many others–were thanks to members who spoke out on each of these issues. Write to your lawmakers about the issues that matter most to you!
You can follow the bills we’re tracking in the State Legislature here.
If you would like to take your advocacy even further by calling your representatives or writing letters to the editor, sign up for our emailing list here.
