The Green New Deal

October 2019_0068

At our October meeting we had two young activists from Sunrise Movement, Melissa Elder and Penn Diehl, talk to us about the Green New Deal. Just like New Deal of 1930s, the Green New Deal of 2030s is a structure for legislative reform addressing monumental challenges due to the very real climate crisis. It is not a specific legislative proposal, but the foundation based on Clean Energy pushing for a number of legislative proposals addressing environment, jobs, international competition, income inequality and other related issues. The next generation is very concerned about the challenges they face due to these issues, worried about the lack of urgency, and is actively pushing for reforms. We had over 80 members and guests in attendance.
