People’s Action, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Cori Bush, and Sunrise Movement Host National Day of Action for Green New Deal

WASHINGTON - People’s Action today joined U.S. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-New York, Cori Bush, D-Mo., and Sunrise Movement to lead a national day of action to support the Green New Deal (GND). Participants will call their elected Members of Congress to urge them to support the GND Resolution as well as two new pieces of legislation introduced last week: the Civilian Climate Corps Act and the Green New Deal for Cities Act, which People’s Action helped draft. 

Callers can sign up here and will receive a virtual training at the beginning of their shift.

"Change won’t come from the inside. We need people on the ground demanding transformation,” People’s Action Climate Justice Campaign Director Kaniela Ing said. “We are modeling how movement politicians can work directly with organizers to push their colleagues and bring people together all across America. This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to invest the $1 trillion a year to make that happen. If enough of us stand up and speak out, we will finally win what we need to thrive."

Last week, People’s Action launched a new climate justice campaign, Local Green New Deal, with a joint petition, video, and new legislation alongside Bush and Ocasio-Cortez to empower local elected officials to push farther than President Biden’s Build Back Better Plan, support a Green New Deal, and advance ambitious local green new deal policies.
