“As someone who does not have access to affordable healthcare, I know how important proper healthcare and a liveable wage are. I know the pain that comes with unstable employment and a failing healthcare system,” said Kashish Bastola, a 16-year old Sunrise Movement Dallas leader. “That’s why our movement is demanding a Green New Deal that will guarantee Good Jobs for All while stopping the climate crisis and creating a safer, healthier society.”
