Nuclear New York is an independent, non-partisan advocacy organization working towards a prosperous decarbonized future, nature conservation, and vibrant communities. The non-profit group conducts rigorous research, education, policy advocacy, and non-intrusive activism. Comprised of an extremely diverse membership with different political affiliations, economic theories, cultural backgrounds, and walks of life, Nuclear New York is united in advocating for evidence-based climate policies, conducting respectful dialogue with community groups, and building consensus with labor and capital.
In June 2022, Nuclear New York co-authored the policy brief Bright Future, a More Reliable and Responsible Climate Plan for New York with Clean Energy Jobs Coalition-NY, representing 270,000 skilled energy workers, and Campaign for a Green Nuclear Deal, a nationwide advocacy effort articulating a vision to regain American industrial capabilities while creating dignified jobs in clean energy and manufacturing.
With its analysis, reporting, and testimony on the shuttering of the Indian Point nuclear power plant, Nuclear New York has become an authority on environmental, social, and economic impacts of premature nuclear closures.
