From the 350NYC April Newsletter:
On April 26th the Cowboy Indian Alliance of tribal leaders, farmers, and ranchers have invited our movement to join them at their tipi encampment on the National Mall for their closing argument against Keystone XL -- and NYC is stepping up to answer the call.
On April 3rd, The New York Society for Ethical Culture (NYSEC) and affiliate United Social Services, Inc. honored David N. Dinkins, the 106th Mayor of New York, with the inaugural Dr. Phyllis Harrison-Ross Public Service Award.
Here are some wonderful pictures from this great event. We hope to do many more speed deed events so stay posted! In case you missed it this was an intergenerational event that brought everyone together to dive into a "deed". The pictures tell the story. Join us next time!
