The Green New Deal

Co-led by: Destiney Lee- Climate organizer; Yasmine Pauling- Policy fellow, The Sunrise Movement & Ericka Symmonds- Director of Workforce Development, GRID Alternatives

Talk about the Green New Deal–federal legislation to fight climate change, that, until it was introduced in February 2019 with much fanfare, was a cornerstone in the unlikely campaign of New York’s Alexandria Ocasio Cortez–and there are a dozen different reactions. What’s certain is that the legislation has emerged as a reference point in conversations about climate change, and has fostered many similar measures. It would reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and calls for the United States to switch to 100 percent renewable energy in 10 years. It funds new jobs, including installing solar panels, retrofitting coastal infrastructure and manufacturing electric vehicles. Join three thoughtful activists to discuss the elements of the deal, how it will impact income inequities, and how it trended into the national consciousness.
