Take Action

The most important thing you can do right now is:

Call Governor Hochul, ask her to deny Greenidge’s Title V Air Permit and declare a moratorium on bitcoin mining NOW 866-942-5138


The Finger Lakes are facing an enormous environmental, public health and economic threat that few people know about. There is a new proposal to build a massive garbage incinerator in the town of Romulus, New York, less than 4 miles from the shores of Seneca and Cayuga Lakes. If approved, it would be built at the old Seneca Army Depot, just a few hundred yards away from the Romulus K-12 public school. It is also near Hillside Children’s Center, a residential facility for troubled youth, the 5 Points Correctional Facility, Willard Drug Treatment Center and the Seneca County Jail, making this an environmental justice issue.

We hope you’ll join us in the fight to protect Seneca.
