Earth Day is a great time to celebrate the accomplishments of environmental organizations and individuals’ actions around the world, but we all know our work doesn’t stop there. One of Climate Legacy’s newest members, Just Recovery Kingston recently created a petition for Earth Day demanding banks in Kingston stop funding the fossil fuel industry. The petition remains live, you can sign and tell bank CEOs they need to start investing in our collective future, not in deforestation, coal plants and pipelines.
Just Recovery Kingston formed during COVID to “build back better” at the local level, with an emphasis on people’s needs and the environment. They are currently focused on two main campaigns; expanding access to community gardens and expanding fare-free transit in the city.
