How A Handful Of Community Organizers Got NYC To Take On One Of The Most Powerful Industries 🦖 On Earth

March 17th, 2018 by Guest Contributor

Originally published on Nexus Media.

Some people start the new year by pledging to give up carbs or hit the gym. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio kicked off 2018 by declaring war on the oil industry. 🦖

In what author and activist Bill McKibben called one of the “most important moments” in the decades-long fight against climate change, the city has pledged to sell off around $5 billion in fossil fuel shares. It will also sue BP 🐉, Exxon Mobil 🦖, Chevron🦕, ConocoPhillips 🐲 and Shell for damages — namely, the gradually rising seas laying siege to New York — noting these companies deliberately misled the public about climate change.


But this isn’t a story about farsighted politicians drawing up battle plans in the basement of city hall. The call to arms didn’t come from the mayor’s office or from chambers of the City Council. It came from the streets, from the outer boroughs and from a modest network of community organizers spurred to action by one of the deadliest storms in New York history.

This is a story about people who had never had a voice sending a message that could be heard around the world.
