[email protected] @CarlHeastie: It's time to pass the New York Public Banking Act!

Check out this powerful new video to learn how local public banks will advance racial, economic, and environmental justice across New York:

"Advanced recycling" is one of the plastics industry's favorite false solutions to the #plasticpollutioncrisis that will speed #climatechange, harm communities (especially #environmentaljustice communities), and pollute our environment while failing to reduce plastic pollution.

The bill (Senate Bill S7891 and Assembly Bill A9495) purports to support so-called "advanced recycling" which is a greenwashing term for the burning of plastic that's being pushed by the plastics and petrochem industry nationwide to enable them to keep making more & more plastic.

We're 1 of 84 organizations urging @SenJohnMannion
and @AliciaHyndman NOT to reintroduce their bill promoting plastic burning as it would undermine NYS's climate efforts, threaten #environmentaljustice & pollute NYer's air, water, soil and bodies. @CarlHeastie @CPeoplesStokes

At Mahsa Amini's funeral in her hometown of Saqqez, Kurdistan province, women take their headscarves off in protest against Iran's forced hijab law amid "death to the dictator" chants.

Mahsa, 22, died in custody after being arrested by morality police.
