If you’re a New Yorker 60 years or older, join our efforts to protect both our fragile climate and our fragile democracy!

Help us grow the NYC working group into a powerful voice for good in our community. Because we Boomers know it’s not okay, and it’s our time for us to step up, not step back. As New Yorkers, we have a fiercely proud history of activism. Countless social justice and labor movements got their start and found crucial support in our city. 60+ New Yorkers have a ton of skills and resources. We’re feisty, loud and unafraid to lift our voices. Some of us have kids, grandkids, and even great grandkids. All of us want to live on a planet that sustains the beauty and biodiversity of Earth. We each have deeply personal reasons to participate.


We acknowledge the painful fact that in the decades since the first UN climate meeting in Rio 1992, global carbon emissions have continued to rise. It’s time for our generation to act TOGETHER and leverage our enormous power and resources. We need to fight the powerful forces that are pushing our Earth to a climate tipping point that can never be reversed.

We must sustain and pass on a climate and biosphere that can support all life on Earth. A livable planet for all people, including our children and their children for generations to come.


We are committed to a thriving democracy, where all voices are heard and the rights of all are protected. Our generation is demographically huge – some statistics show that 10,000 Americans turn 60 each day – and we VOTE. We don’t take voting for granted. We need to take every opportunity to get out the vote and remind our elected representatives of the work to be done. We support communities across our country in the fight against voter suppression and threats to our rights as citizens.

We work in coalition with

Fridays For Future NYC
NY Renews
