In this Thursday Teach-In, our focus will be a Green New Deal. There’s a lot of talk today about a Green New Deal (GND) and that’s because this exciting and ambitious idea is the first attempt we’ve seen to address the climate crisis in a big way – commensurate with the scale of the problem. A GND can offer us a path to build a more fair, inclusive, prosperous and sustainable economy and society powered by clean renewable energy with good union jobs. It invests in public infrastructure, ensures a just transition for communities and workers, protects our environment and promotes environmental health and justice. That’s exactly what we need!

To make a GND real, we need government, businesses, workers, and communities to all join in. And we need all of you to demand that candidates and elected officials – from local electeds all the way to the President – support and work to advance this bold and promising vision by saying “YES” to a Green New Deal an “NO” to continued investment in fossil fuels.
