Today, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) introduced the official Green New Deal (GND) Resolution, in the U.S. House and Senate.
It’s everything we hoped for.
Ever since the GND started making headlines, we’ve been urging everyone who cares about food and farming, health, a clean environment and global warming to get involved.
Now that it’s official, we’re asking you to step up your involvement. Please use the tools below to call, tweet, email and visit your members of Congress. Ask them to get behind this now-or-never plan to address so many of the crises we face—crises directly tied to policies that have for far too long served corporations, not people.
The activists at the Sunrise Movement said it best:
If resolutions get enough cosponsors, they can become a major driver of the policy debate! If not, they can get lost in the political shuffle and fade into oblivion.
We can’t afford for the GND Resolution to fade into oblivion. That means we can’t afford to not get involved.
