To make this landmark legislation law we need a lot of New Yorkers to let their state legislators know they support it on social media. You can help! Here’s how:

STEP 1: Download the support Graphic.

Download this PNG graphic, which you will post on X/Twitter and/or Instagram to declare your support.

STEP 2: Find your Sate Senator and State Assemblymember on the maps below.

On the two maps below (State Senate top, Assembly bottom) click on the colored districts that your permanent residence falls within to find your State Senator and Assemblymember, respectively. Do both! (Sorry, we can’t integrate a search field, so this requires a little basic geography knowledge of where you are! You can zoom in to get oriented).

STEP 3: Copy their social media handles.

A panel will open up on the lefthand side of the maps to reveal the information for both your State Senator and Assemblymember, including their X/Twitter handle and Instagram handle. Copy both handles and save them.

STEP 4: Post your support message

Open up your X/Twitter and/or Instagram accounts up, and post the graphic with a short message stating 1. which neighborhood and borough you live in and 2. why you support the bill. Address and tag your assemblymember and senator right in the message. This unique message is important, because it proves you are not a bot, but a real person!

STEP 5: Tag other key legislators

Make sure to include in the post the handles for the Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie,  Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart Cousins, and State Senator Liz Krueger and Assemblymember Jaime Williams, the chairs of the State Senate Finance Committee, and Assembly Real Property Tax Committee, respectively, where the legislation is currently assigned.

X / Twitter handles to paste: @CarlHeastie @AndreaSCousins @LizKrueger

Instagram handles to paste: @cheastie @jaimer.williams @andreastewartcousins @senatorlizkrueger

STEP 6: Include the Hashtag #NYCarbonCity
