Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has announced he’s bringing the Green New Deal resolution to a vote in the Senate. On Monday Feb 25, young people from Kentucky – McConnell's home state – are planning to confront him in DC. We need to be there to back them! If you live close to DC and want to join us on the 25th for this escalation, fill out this form.


visit your reps for a green new deal

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Ed Markey have introduced a Joint Resolution for a Green New Deal. If resolutions get enough cosponsors, they can become a major driver of the policy debate! If not, they can get lost in the political shuffle and fade into oblivion.

That's why from Feb. 18-22, we are going to show up in person at our Senators' and Representatives' offices and ask them to cosponsor the Green New Deal Resolution.

Then, on Feb. 26, we’re going to Congressional offices around the country for a nationwide coordinated day of action to push for a Green New Deal. Use the map below to find an event near you or share your own.
