Environmental Protection

We must have a focused and comprehensive approach to fighting climate change and conserving our natural environment.  This should include building green and investing in public transportation, preserving and enhancing green space, and divesting from the fossil fuel industry.  As we do so, we must be mindful that burdens are not simply shifted to already-burdened areas, almost always communities of more color. I proudly supported efforts to equalize how waste is moved in NYC and will continue to work with attention to such consequences, and I am proud to support the Green New Deal in Congress.
