    Monthly organizing potluck for health care!

    ("Fund Healthcare Not Police" on October 10, 2020)

     

    Metro Justice is a founding member of the Campaign for New York Health: a statewide movement to pass the New York Health Act so that we have universal, public health care in New York State. No more premiums; no more co-pays; no more deductibles. Health care is a human right. 

    Our local chapter, Rochester for NY Health, is gaining the kind of people power that we will need to win health care for all in New York in 2020! Come be a part of the movement and share a meal with other health care advocates at our monthly organizing potluck!

    Organizing Meeting: Rochester for Energy Democracy

    Welcome to Rochester for Energy Democracy (R.E.D.)!

    For-profit, investor-owned utilities like RG&E keep raising our rates, only to neglect maintenance of the grid and expand fossil fuel infrastructure. On top of that, oil and gas continue to lobby against a fast and massive transition to renewable energy. As a result, we all pay more than we should in energy bills while the continued use of fossil fuels pushes us towards catastrophic environmental damage. 

    In R.E.D., we believe that in order to combat the climate crisis and ensure environmental justice in the long-term, we must fundamentally transform our energy economy. We need to build an energy system that meets the needs of communities instead of meeting the greed of distant investors and CEOs. We also need a shift to energy that is 100% clean and renewable. We believe this is possible if we create a community owned and operated energy economy. The first steps towards this vision is organizing our neighborhoods for community-owned solar and replacing RG&E with a public utility. This will give communities a say in what kind of energy we use, whom we get it from, and how the money we pay is used to benefit our community. Furthermore, everyone could only pay what is necessary to develop and maintain energy infrastructure, taking millions in profits for investors and CEOs out of the picture.

    A community-driven energy system needs the involvement of people in our community to succeed. To join us at our next meeting, please RSVP below! If this will be your first time attending a R.E.D. Organizing Meeting, our Lead Organizer, Mohini, will follow-up with you to meet 1-on-1 sometime before the upcoming meeting. Before you attend your first meeting, we would like to learn more about why this is important to you, bring you up to speed on our campaign so far, and answer any questions you have!
