Tri-state residents in the La Crosse Region:
Join us at Hackberry's Bistro event space in the People's Food Co-op with your snacks and beverages beginning at 7 p.m. as we talk, watch a short Sunrise Movement video, and prepare to:
1) Watch the Presidential Debates in Miami happening from 8-10 p.m. Central Time; and
2) Amplify climate concerns on social media with use of hashtags including: #ChangeTheDebate #ClimateDebate #GreenNewDeal
Last November, the Sunrise Movement challenged Democratic leadership with a simple question: "What is your plan?" with regard to climate action and related social justice for all. 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.
On June 26, presidential candidates will face off for the first time in Miami, Florida. While local Sunrise activists mobilize at the debate, our watch parties across the country to amplify their actions.
During these watch parties, we'll be flooding social media with demands for a Green New Deal, and making plans with our friends, peers and coworkers to put the pressure on these candidates and demand they give a damn about our lives.
This is an alphabetical list from The Years Project on "Where the 2020 Democrats Stand On Climate" so far, but they also need to talk about their stances far more so voters know their positions!
Therefore, RSVP here to join our debate watch party on June 26 and help us #ChangeTheDebate to include the most important challenge and opportunity we all share in the U.S. and across Planet Earth!
