PAUSE

People of Albany United for Safe Energy







We invite you to become a PAUSE member and receive updates.

A member is anyone who agrees with our mission statement and who contributes to PAUSE in any way.

PAUSE is a grassroots group of individuals who have come together to promote safe, sustainable energy and fight for environmental justice. We engage the greater public to stop the fossil fuel industry’s assault on the people of Albany, New York and our environment.

Our work reaches out to people and groups around the globe who strive for an end to the ruinous fossil fuel economy and to replace it with a just, sustainable, and distributed system of energy that meets people’s real needs and does not destroy the Earth’s climate.

As climate activists and environmentalists, we stand for climate justice and prioritizing the needs of frontline communities. At this moment, in which America is awakening to the need to eliminate police violence and also address structural violence against communities of color, we want to affirm that we stand with Black Lives Matter and all groups targeted by police. Repressive and unjust police practices should have no role in our society, yet at present, we have one of the most violent and most excessively armed police forces in the world. True change is needed. We commit to listening to the voices of all frontline communities as we journey towards Climate Justice with Social Justice. Without Justice For All, the future will be unsustainable.

Earth Day Sign, front and back

Earth Day Lawn Sign Bloom: In honor of the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day, PAUSE sponsored an Earth Day lawn sign bloom. What is that? On April 22, 2020, everyone who purchased one of these signs displayed it in their yard or window so that they all went up simultaneously. To add to our blooms and purchase your sign(s) please contact Diana Wright at PAUSEnergy@gmail.com Please put lawn sign in the subject line.
