If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it's that we need to rethink everything.
From our broken healthcare system, to our poorly supported-yet-so-essential local family farmers, to our contaminated environment, to our own compromised immune systems—"normal" isn't working.
We need large-scale systems change. Now, more than ever, we need a Regenerative Green New Deal (GND).
In an article titled “'Normal Was a Crisis': Why the Green New Deal Is the Perfect Response for the Post-Covid-19 Economy,” edie.net editor Matt Mace writes:
“Sir David Attenborough told the Big Issue this week that ‘there’s no moral to be taken from what happened in the past. We’ve got a completely blank sheet of paper in front of us.’ By titling that blank sheet with the words ‘Green New Deal’ nations can recover from an economic slump with climate and health at the heart of every decision.”
Please let your members of Congress know that you want better—not normal.
