Sunrise Movement says “The Green New Deal is the only plan put forward to address the interwoven crises of climate catastrophe, economic inequality, and racism at the scale that science and justice demand.” We discuss some of the ideas underlying this bold proposal.
The reading list:
- Sunrise Nashville
- Sunrise Nashville on Facebook
- Citizen's Climate Lobby Boston
- Sunrise on the GND
- CCL's Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act

Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on carbon to safeguard our collective future.
Thanks for listening.
