On February 7, 2019, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) introduced their resolution for the development of a Green New Deal – one that would start us on track towards a zero-emissions economy, living wages for all farmers and workers, and justice for historically marginalized communities.
Thousands of people across the country are already demanding action that matches the scale and urgency of the climate crisis. To date, U.S. politicians have failed miserably at implementing that kind of action. But we have an exciting opportunity now with the Green New Deal, and we want them to know how many of their constituents support it!
