A note from the North Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce’s Environmental Initiatives Committee:

Whether you want to participate, or want to prepare for how this might impact your business during the day, it might be worth planning for September 20th. This is the day when it’s being said that millions will take to the streets all across the US and world to demand transformative action be taken to address the climate crisis. All of the events are listed online at The Action Network’s website. Fridays For Future movement starter, Greta Thunberg, will be leading the strike at Union Square.

As always, the Environmental Initiatives Committee would like to hear from you. Contact us at [email protected] with any questions, issues, or to receive updates on upcoming programs and events.
