We're building an army of young people to make climate change an urgent priority across America, end the corrupting influence of fossil fuel executives on our politics, and elect leaders who stand up for the health and wellbeing of all people.
We are ordinary young people who are scared about what the climate crisis means for the people and places we love. We are gathering in classrooms, living rooms, and worship halls across the country. Everyone has a role to play. Public opinion is already with us - if we unite by the millions we can turn this into political power and reclaim our democracy.
We are not looking to the right or left. We look forward. Together, we will change this country and this world, sure as the sun rises each morning.
OUR ROAD TO VICTORY ON A GREEN NEW DEAL
We need a Green New Deal to fight the climate crisis at the scale that scientists say is necessary. It’s a plan that would transform our economy and society at the scale needed to stop the climate crisis. It’s our fighting chance to actually stop this crisis - for some of us, the first we’ve seen in our whole lives.
Here is how we win:
- Launch the “Road to a Green New Deal Tour” to reach tens of thousands people around the country, and give them to tools to get their politicians signed on.
- Turn up the heat on every Presidential and Congressional candidate to back the Green New Deal.
- Build our movement in every corner of the country so we can reach the millions of young people who are scared about climate and keep building support for a Green New Deal.
- Join with other movements for change to elect a President and a Congress that will stand up to fossil fuel CEOs and pass a Green New Deal to transform our economy within the coming decade and offer a job to every single American who wants one — no matter the color of our skin, where we live or where our parents are from.
Taking action and raising your voice is how we achieve this.
we pulled off our biggest action yet on Monday December 10th 2018. 1,000-strong, we united in Washington DC to demand House Democratic Leadership sign on to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's resolution for a Select Committee on a Green New Deal.
