Organizing A Green New Deal: Ten Million Climate Jobs to Help Solve The Economic And Environmental Crises
Sunday, September 21st, thousands of marchers will take to the streets in New York City, London, Portland and all over the globe to participate in a People’s Climate March. Organizers anticipate that the NYC march will be the “largest climate march in history.”
Organizers say marchers will “take to the streets to demand the world we know is within our reach: a world with an economy that works for people and the planet. A world safe from the ravages of climate change. A world with good jobs, clean air, and healthy communities for everyone.”
We couldn’t agree more! But what about the morning after? After marchers go home and the streets return to their usual daily hustle and bustle?
After the march is when the work of organizing and building a movement begins. The stakes are so high that this is our time to make big demands, and enforce them through persistent organizing and movement building.
We believe our goal should be nothing short of transforming the destructive nature of our current economic order into one that will provide working people with meaningful employment, and allow us to live at peace with our natural surroundings.
We propose this one demand:
A Green New Deal: Ten Million Climate Jobs to Help Solve The Economic And Environmental Crises
In order to bring this vision into concrete reality, we must build a movement that includes the biggest and most diverse mobilization of ordinary people imaginable. It’s a massive challenge. You are invited to help shape how this vision transforms from idea to reality.
