Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Ed Markey are introducing a Joint Resolution for a Green New Deal. We know that if resolutions get enough cosponsors, they can become a major driver of the policy debate! If not, they can get lost in the political shuffle and fade into oblivion.

That's why between Feb 11-13, we are going to show up in person at our Senators' and Representatives' offices and ask them to cosponsor the Green New Deal Resolution. They need to make a choice: will they support the only resolution to meet the scale of the climate crisis? Or will they condemn the millions of young people in our generation to a future ravaged by wildfires, heatwaves, and hurricanes?

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 won’t be won on Twitter. It’ll be won because millions of Americans relentlessly demanded the real solutions to the greatest crisis of our lifetimes. Let's do this!
