Join us in Washington, DC on January 17 to start off the year by sending our elected leaders a message they can’t ignore: it’s time for a Green New Deal.
Backed by a new, diverse, and growing slate of elected leaders like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Green New Deal would create millions of good-paying jobs building a just, rapid transition to 100% renewable energy in the timeline we need to avert the worst impacts of climate change.
Right after the 2018 elections, thousands of young people organized sit-ins at Congressional leaders’ offices demanding they listen to the demands of science and justice and take bold climate action. Our movement’s actions have already completely changed the scope of what’s possible.
As our new Congress settles in to their offices and 2020 presidential contenders start to announce their candidacies, we need to keep up the momentum to set the bar for real climate leadership. Join us to take action.
