NYLPI @NYLPI Throwback to last winter, before COVID, when #RenewableRikers made all the sense in the world. Now, with a deadly pandemic having devastated incarcerated populations and Black and Brown communities, we need to replace jails with green job centers more than ever. #ClimateWeekNYC https://t.co/VGRjLzvX6O
NYLPI @NYLPI Instead of a brutal jail, communities near Rikers could have the open space, infrastructure, and jobs - including a solar farm, battery storage to power the grid, a state of the art waste water treatment plant, compost facilities to recycle food waste!
NYLPI @NYLPI It's #ClimateWeekNYC day 2. Today we feature the campaign for a #RenewableRikers: a vision to replace a brutal jail with a sustainable energy & green jobs center near #environmentaljustice communities. @NYLPI's Melissa Iachan will be on this great panel Thursday! https://t.co/FJgYhnaKsD
