Many activities are planned to remember the event and highlight the resilience of the communities that have rebuilt in the year since the huge storm made landfall. In New Jersey, for example, beaches will be lit up with candles and flashlights as residents come together to hold vigils for all that was lost last year.
In New York City, a huge coalition of community organizations is converging on Sunday October 27th for a “Sandy Sojourn” to NYC’s City Hall. From across affected areas of the coast, they’ll come together for a rally to demand a just, sustainable rebuilding from Hurricane Sandy.
It’s been a year since Hurricane Sandy swept through New York City, but the recovery isn’t yet finished. Join community members to call on the city to rebuild with good jobs, affordable housing, community engagement, strong health care and sustainable energy.

After the rally, Forecast the Facts is marking the occasion by taking a critical look at how Wall Street, famously shut down by Sandy, played a role in exacerbating this climate disaster.
Join Forecast the Facts members for “Turning The Tide: Carbon Divestment for a Post-Sandy Wall Street,” a panel discussion to mark Superstorm Sandy’s one-year anniversary and to discuss and organize around Wall Street’s role in climate pollution. The audience and expert panelists will discuss how New York City can lead a global revolution in sustainable investment and what everyone can do to help.
If you’re in New York City, join experts, activists, and community members for this informative panel discussion.
