VOTER EDUCATION GUIDE

Climate Works for All Voter Education Guide 


The Climate Works for All coalition (CW4A) is a coalition of labor, community, faith, environmental justice, and climate organizations that have come together to fight climate change and inequality in NYC by demanding a Just Transition for workers and Environmental Justice communities. Our campaigns move us towards an equitable economy,  a resilient, livable and healthy climate, and prioritize justice for low income Black and Brown communities across New York City. 


In January 2021, CW4A distributed the Climate and Jobs New York City 2021 Candidate Survey a candidate survey to New York City candidates to all qualifying 2021 Mayoral candidates, 2021 Comptroller candidates and 2021 Public Advocate Candidates. The survey asks about candidates stances on racial equity, economy, employment, climate, and how they hope to navigate us through these crises and towards a more equitable, liveable New York City. The survey  invitation was sent to candidates for the above offices who have declared their candidacy by January 10th. The deadline to complete the survey was February 14th 2021. 


Candidate responses are reproduced here in the CW4A Voter Education Guide. Survey responses and language are substantively unedited and in their original form.
