Tuesday, February 26th will be a national day of action targeting politicians who refuse to support a Green New Deal, the most important upcoming piece of economic and climate justice legislation in decades.
We’re giving our leaders a deadline: 3 weeks from now, all members of Congress will have read the resolution and had the chance to make their choice. To turn up the heat on those who haven’t cosponsored yet, we’ll unite for a Nationwide Day of Action.
All across the country, we’ll be storming into offices, singing, dropping banners, rallying outside and making it clear that young people are ready to hold our politicians feet to the fire. If we can pull this off, it will be a political earthquake and we’ll make sure every politician around the country thinks twice before they refuse to back the Green New Deal.
You have 3 targets: your 2 Senators and your House Rep. The Green New Deal won’t be won in backdoor deals in Congress. It’ll be won because millions of Americans relentlessly demanded the real solutions to the greatest crisis of our lifetimes.
