Tell Congress: Support Sen Markey & Rep Ocasio-Cortez’s resolution for a Green New Deal

House and Senate members

In February, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Senator Ed Markey introduced twin resolutions to bring the Green New Deal to Congress.

These resolutions are the first that tackle climate change in line with what science and justice demand, and if we secure a critical mass of support, we can cement the Green New Deal at the top of the political agenda as we head into the 2020 elections. But resolutions are introduced in Congress every day, without our representatives ever hearing from constituents about them.

That’s why we all need to tell our representatives in the House and the Senate: if you want to be taken seriously on climate change and earn the support of young people, you need support this resolution.

The latest climate report from the UN says we have only 12 years to transform our economy to preserve the stable climate human civilization has depended on for millennia.

The Green New Deal is a 10-year plan to mobilize every aspect of American society toward 100% clean and renewable energy, guarantee a good job to all members of our society ready to be part of this transformation, and create economic prosperity for all.

81% of Americans support the Green New Deal. It’s time for our political leaders to find the courage to stand up to the oil and gas CEOs and lobbyists who bankroll both parties, and back a Green New Deal.

House and Senate leaders, please support Sen. Markey and Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s resolution for a Green New Deal.
