Monthly events will help our community understand how to get the right leaders into office and each will offer the chance to take a civic action.
Sustain the Vote is focusing on the NYC City Council race. Our goals are to educate candidates about resiliency, clean energy, and equitable and sustainable infrastructure; and about their constituents’ specific interests with respect to those issues, and to spur and facilitate constituent engagement with elected representatives on STV issues
Want to help ensure candidates prepare for a clean energy future? Reach out to us and to get involved.
Here are some actions you can take any time.
