  • Shaping Policies for a Just Energy Transition
    Our policy program is dedicated to advancing energy and climate justice by promoting equitable transitions to clean and green infrastructure. We advocate for inclusive policies that prioritize frontline communities and environmental well-being. A central focus of this program is the implementation of the New York Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act (CLCPA), which sets ambitious climate goals for the state. As part of our efforts, Raya Salter, our Founder and Executive Director, actively participates in the New York State Climate Action Council where she advocates for the just and effective implementation of the CLCPA. This council plays a pivotal role in shaping the state's climate policies and ensuring they align with the goals of our Climate Act. Additionally, we are deeply involved in the development of a clean and equitable transmission grid in New York state. EJLPC serves as a member of the NYS Energy Policy Planning Advisory Council, working to ensure the development of a transmission grid that complies with the climate goals outlined in the CLCPA. At EJLPC, we are dedicated to ensuring that no communities are left behind in the clean energy transition. Join us in our mission to advance energy justice, environmental equity, and a sustainable energy future for all.
  • Energy Justice Alliance: Uniting Communities for a Just Transition
    The Energy Justice Law and Policy Center convenes the Energy Justice Alliance (EJA). EJA is a BIPOC-led grassroots coalition organizing for a just transition in southern Westchester, the Hudson Valley and New York State. EJA's mission is to unite communities around environmental, racial, and economic justice. We create spaces in policy for frontline voices, including youth voices, ensuring that marginalized communities are at the forefront of the just transition movement. Key Focus Areas: - Stopping Fossil Gas Plants: We strive to halt the construction of new gas plants, preventing their expansion and advocating for cleaner, sustainable energy alternatives. - Working to develop community-based and led energy policy to ensure a seat at the table for frontline communities in a just clean energy economy, including family sustaining and union jobs for BIPOC communities.
  • Empowering Communities through Eco Education
    We are dedicated to climate education and stewardship for young people. Key Initiatives: - Establishing a New Rochelle Urban Resilience Center at Five Islands Park, now the home of our New Rochelle Youth Eco-Ambassador Program. - Community Air Monitoring: We actively participate as a nonprofit partner with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Community Air Monitoring Program, collecting and disseminating air quality data.
