Last November, Sunrise Movement challenged Democratic leadership with a simple question: What is your climate plan? That question shook the world.
Since then, presidential candidates have been racing to back the Green New Deal, the first plan to treat climate change like the emergency it is.
But others have doubled down on the same corporate-driven policies that have failed for decades. This approach is a death sentence for our generation.
On July 30-31, 20 candidates will walk onstage in Detroit for the second Democratic Presidential Primary debate. They'll ask for our votes. We'll ask them to give a damn about our lives.
Join us in Detroit to turn the tide of history together. For our future. For justice. For humanity. Let's #ChangeTheDebate.
What are our demands?
We demand that all candidates reject fossil fuel money, support a “climate debate”, and make the Green New Deal a Day 1 priority.
When and where will it be?
Detroit, Michigan. July 30-31. The debate will take place over two nights, with 10 candidates on stage each night.
