Green New Deal
“We must be daring and courageous in response to our climate crisis. It’s happening right here at home.”
The Green New Deal is a fast and necessary transition to 100% renewable energy for everyone. We need to eliminate fossil fuel use everywhere, and we need to cut off the social licensing and financing of fossil fuel companies. We must divest, desponsor, and defund these companies and finally put an end to this industry’s legal immunity.
The Green New Deal also puts people at the center of the plan to transition to a sustainable and equitable world. It provides Americans with the training, education, and job guarantees needed to ensure a feasible and just transition, especially for those communities that are the least responsible for climate change and the most affected by it: working class families, low-income workers, people of color, and indigenous peoples.
