Support the Green New Deal in Northwest Washington!
The Green New Deal is a bold, progressive plan that matches the urgency of the climate crisis with massive investment in a clean energy. It starts us on the path to create millions of high-paying jobs while transitioning the United States to 100% renewable energy within ten years.
The majority of us living in Northwest Washington's second district (WA-2) enthusiastically support these kinds of bold, progressive policies. And we want our member of Congress to support them, too. Our current member of Congress has expressed more doubt than excitement because he doesn't believe that he can "sell" the idea to 23,000 people in Washington's Second District who work in the aviation industry.
I am convinced that there are more than 23,000 people here who believe that we must end our dependence on fossil fuels, create well-paying jobs, and protect the marginalized communities that are hit hardest by the impacts of climate change. And we can do it while protecting union jobs and creating many more.
Your voice can help us beat back climate change while creating a prosperous, just, and sustainable economy at the same time!
“It’s clear that any politician who wants to be taken seriously by our generation needs to have the courage to stand up to the fossil fuel billionaires and back a Green New Deal.”—Varshini Prakash, co-founder of Sunrise Movement

We urge you to join dozens of your Democratic colleagues in supporting the Green New Deal Resolution introduced by Senator Ed Markey and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. We can and must build a 100% renewable energy economy while creating millions of new, well-paying, American jobs.
It's time to stop using language that suggests that there is a conflict between creating and maintaining good jobs and protecting the climate.
Withholding your support leaves our community without a seat at the table as the some of the most important policies in our country are written.
