About

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.

“Our generation was born into a time when all things were possible. We knew we could change things, and we did… But as a generation we’ve been largely quiet and asleep, and it’s time for us – again.”
Akaya Windwood, Lead Advisor, TH!RD ACT

60+ New Yorkers have a ton of skills and resources. We’re feisty, loud, and unafraid to lift our voices. And many of us have kids and grandkids and great grandkids: we have, in other words, deeply personal reasons to step up and take action.

CLIMATE

We acknowledge the painful fact that in the thirty years since the first UN climate meeting in 1992 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, global carbon emissions have risen by more than 60%.

In spite of all the good work…

Clearly it’s time to do things differently. Because as Einstein noted, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

As well as what we can do as individuals, it’s time for our generation to act TOGETHER and use our enormous power and resources. As we know from the science, this is our do-or-die moment to fight for our children’s future before climate tipping-points are exceeded that can never be reversed.

We must pass on a livable planet and biosphere that supports our children and their children for generations to come.

NY COALITIONS

Many groups and coalitions are working on the frontlines and building power here in NY City and State. Excellent organizations such as 350.org, DIVEST NY, SUNRISE MOVEMENT, NYC Grassroots Alliance have made significant strides, mobilizing and campaigning for climate justice and voting rights.

We see an important role for our NYC working group as we grow - joining these coalitions and supporting their actions and campaigns. We hope to bring the commitment, experience and resources of New Yorkers over 60 to strengthen these networks here in New York City and NY State.
