Introduction

Hi, I'm Dee, I'm a recent retiree and now focus on climate change activism as my main activity in life. My early activism was women's and gay movement. I've worked for 25 years in colleges in NYC and want to broaden outreach to more communities.

What attracted you to join 350NYC?

I hike a lot and the impact on woodlands and mountains of global warming (wildfires etc) breaks my heart. I'm a homeowner and want to learn how to make conversion to solar energy more attainable. Also, how can city apartment dwellers organize to influence energy use in large organizations and property management companies. I'm heartened by 350org as a youth organization and would like to develop cross-generational partnerships. I live in Harlem and would like to network in this area and anywhere in Manhattan.
