Senator Biaggi's Week in Review: 4/25/22-4/29/22


Senator Alessandra Biaggi

Dear Community,

On Tuesday, I was incredibly proud to host a rally in Albany in support of my bill with Assemblymember Anna Kelles, the Fashion Sustainability and Social Accountability Act (S7428/A8352). This bill would require apparel and footwear companies that make over $100 million/year in gross earnings that do business in New York State to map their supply chains, disclose environmental and social impacts, and set goals in accordance with Science Based Targets. Ultimately, this bill has the power to lower carbon emissions globally and force global companies to change how they operate world-wide. 

I’d like to especially thank Assemblymember Anna Kelles, the New Standard Fashion Institute, members of our Fashion Act coalition, and advocates for joining us for this incredible rally. If we are to truly transform the fashion industry and hold it accountable for its impact on people and the planet, then we must work together to pass this crucial legislation. 

I am also excited to announce that I was featured in a segment of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee to discuss the Fashion Act. Watch the segment here

With Gratitude,

State Senator Alessandra Biaggi
