The Road to a Green New Deal with Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Abdul El-Sayed

When: Fri., April 19, 6 p.m. 2019

As people across the country step up to demand that our leaders confront the challenges of climate change, a nascent political movement has grown from the Green New Deal. To support its recent momentum, Sunrise Movement is touring eight cities across the U.S., including Detroit, to raise awareness and empower citizens to support sensible climate policies. In Detroit, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Abdul El-Sayed, Dorthea Thomas of Good Jobs Now, and Natasha J. Fernández-Silber of Democratic Socialists of America will share personal testimony on how climate change has affected them and their communities. The Detroit stop will emphasize sustainable water infrastructure and poverty elimination.
