A group of passionate, knowledgeable high school students, most of whom are part of the 350 Bay Area’s Youth Vs. Apocalypse activism group, will present the Green New Deal to the Windsor Democratic Club on Thursday, March 28. (More information about this local student movement is here.)
The Green New Deal is a movement which has the support of young people nationwide. In a resolution recently introduced in Congress, the proposals making up the Green New Deal address climate change and good jobs for all as interconnected issues to be solved together. The Green New Deal outlines the kind of social, political, and economic mobilization which will enable the United States to achieve net-zero carbon emissions in 12 years.
Youth are demanding that elected officials take immediate action to end dependence on fossil fuels, support this resolution locally, and secure a future with a livable climate for generations to come. The presenters at the March 28th meeting will explain—in depth—the goals of this resolution, how mobilization for climate justice could look like in our community, and why support for the Green New Deal is crucial in these trying times.
The Windsor Democratic Club meets on the fourth Thursday of every month at the Windsor Round Table Pizza, from 7 to 9 pm. Free pizza is provided, and the meeting is open to all.
