To: Melissa Mark-Viverito, Speaker City Council of New York City

FREE PUBLIC TRANSIT ON September 21st for THE PEOPLE’S CLIMATE MARCH

Speaker Mark-Viverito:

The People’s Climate March will be the largest march for climate change and global warming awareness in the history of the United States. In addition to the thousands of New Yorkers who will attend the march, tens of thousands more will travel to our city from all across the country.

Given that the City Council recently passed a resolution endorsing the People’s Climate March, we the undersigned call on the City Council to demonstrate their support by allowing for Free Public Transit within the city on September 21, 2014. Providing New Yorkers and guests this one day of free travel will reduce traffic and associated emissions, allow for a smoother flow of foot traffic and attract more people to the march.

If the City of Boston can allow for free travel on New Year’s Eve, the City of New York can do the same for one of the most important events for our climate in history. Therefore, we beseech you to act immediately.

Thank You

Why is this important?
