2008 Annual Report


New York is our home. We all share a responsibility to protect its air, land and water, and that sentiment is right at the heart of Environmental Advocates NY. We exist to ensure the responsible stewardship of our shared environment— our New York—and we’re not alone. Thousands of New Yorkers lend their voices to our efforts almost every day. Environmental Advocates works tirelessly to hold accountable New York’s leaders, agencies and elected officials for the decisions they make regarding the health of our natural resources, as well as the health of 19 million New Yorkers. We do our best to make sure that our members—from Buffalo and Rochester, to Glens Falls and Plattsburgh, to Southold and Oyster Bay and Manhattan— understand what is and isn’t happening in Albany, while making it easy for New Yorkers to communicate with lawmakers about what matters most, when it matters most. For 40 years, we’ve served as the state’s government watchdog. We’re proud of Environmental Advocates’ legacy, whether we’re standing alone or fighting alongside our allies.
