Tell Barbara Lee and Nancy Pelosi to support immediate action for a Green New Deal! Join the Sunrise Movement to visit Barbara Lee or Nancy Pelosi in a national day of action calling on legislators to support rapid national mobilization for an equitable clean-energy economy.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is sponsoring a resolution to create a Green New Deal , a 10-year economic mobilization to carbon-neutrality and drawdown. Her resolution includes the requirement that the plan promote “high income work, entrepreneurship and cooperative and public ownership” as well as “social, economic, racial, regional and gender-based justice and equality.”
It is essential that our representatives in Congress get behind this resolution to make it happen.
Last week Ocasio-Cortez joined the Sunrise Movement and Justice Democrats in a sit-in in Nancy Pelosi’s office. They said now that Democrats have a majority in the House of Representatives it’s time to take bold action on the climate.
The Sunrise Movement and Climate Mobilization are calling on everyone to call five leaders of the Progressive Caucus on Monday and join in the national day of visits to legislators Tuesday.
