BIKE RIDE FOR CLIMATE JOBS AND JUSTICE
April 24 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The DC 37 Climate Justice Committee will sponsor a 15-mile bike ride on Saturday, April 24,
2021, to highlight the sustainable work already being done by District Council 37 members and
raise awareness of the importance of Growing Good Green Jobs and the recently released
Climate Works for All Report, An Equitable Recovery for NYC. (Equitable Recovery report) The
ride will include stops at several DC 37 worksites in the Lower East Side and Brooklyn that can
help grow additional green jobs such as NYCHA developments and Public Libraries. Some of
the sites chosen are already undertaking sustainable work and improving the environment, such
as the Red Hook Water Treatment Plant and PS 15 in Red Hook, Brooklyn. We will also visit the
beginnings of the construction of the East Side Coastal Resiliency Project, led by public sector
workers at the NYC Department of Design and Construction and the NYC Parks Department.
We will start our ride at Bellevue Hospital where so many public workers gave so much to help
us combat and recover from the COVID pandemic.
