A Message from Hudson Riverkeeper Paul Gallay:

At Riverkeeper, we don’t back down from a fight. We don’t pull our punches and we do whatever it takes to win. Albany is on the front lines of the climate battle and we need you to turn out. We’ve taken on the fight against fracking, GE’s PCB legacy, and Indian Point nuclear plant. Yet nothing comes close to the challenges we face from climate change. Sea level rise threatens to swallow our Hudson River communities, destroy Hudson Valley farmland and devastate our treasured wildlife.

Climate change is shaping up as our toughest fight ever, and Sept. 21 marks a new chapter in the struggle to hold politicians and polluters accountable for this crisis. I need you to join me and our Waterkeeper Alliance partners at the People’s Climate March in NYC.

No fight of this magnitude, from civil rights to the Vietnam War to the battle for stronger environmental laws, ever succeeded without people taking to the streets. This is our greatest fight and we need our greatest weapon—you.

Join us for the most important action we’ve ever asked you to take. Buses, trains and rideshares are rolling in from every part of New York State, including four from Albany and we need you to get on the move. Sign up RIGHT NOW ( to march with us, and put on your navy blue shirts. See you there!

Sincerely,

Paul Gallay

Executive Director of Hudson Riverkeeper
