Blog Type:  MCS Activism Date Posted:  Saturday, April 27, 2019

MCS student activists recently met with New York State Assemblymember Daniel J. O'Donnell to advocate for strong and urgent action on climate change. This discussion included the climate and community protection act which O’Donnell co-sponsored, and to thank him for his work. They emphasized the importance of prioritizing frontline communities in the state’s effort to address pollution and invest in a green future. They also gave him a t-shirt with their logo, which he said he would wear when he signs the bill.

The student activists also lobbied New York State Assemblymember Linda B. Rosenthal and New York State Senator Robert Jackson.
