EVENT CANCELLED - September 8 – Cheyenna Layne Weber @ Warner Library at 7pmCheyenna Weber, co-founder of SolidarityNYC and an economic justice organizer, activist, writer and film producer, will speak about the connection between social justice and environmental sustainability. She will provide an overview of some new tools and approaches that groups in New York and elsewhere are using to create a more sustainable, resilient and cooperative economic system.
Sept 14th – Walking Audit 2-4pm at Tarrytown Village Hall
As part of our “Complete Streets” initiative, we will host a community walking audit of a quarter mile area around the Tarrytown train station. The goal is to observe and identify concerns and opportunities for pedestrians and bicyclists related to safety, access, comfort, and convenience. Additionally, we will observe traffic patterns and public amenities (streetlights, recycling etc.). Participants will be asked to fill out surveys and engage in a group discussion. After the walking audit, we will reconvene at the Village Hall to share experiences and findings.
September 21 – People’s Climate March NYC – meet at train station at 10:05am in middle of Southbouth platform
In September, world leaders are coming to New York City for a UN summit on the climate crisis. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is urging governments to support an ambitious global agreement to dramatically reduce global warming pollution. With our future on the line and the whole world watching, we’ll take a stand to bend the course of history. We’ll take to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet; a world safe from the ravages of climate change; a world with good jobs, clean air and water, and healthy communities. Join us in marching behind a Tarrytown banner and bring your own signs to make your own messages loud and clear. To change everything, we need everyone on board on Sunday, September 21 in New York City. Join us!
