The Decade of the Green New Deal Begins Now

January 21st, 2021 Movement Wide Day of Action

On January 21st, the first full day of the Biden Administration, our generation will come together in a day of action from every corner of the country and demand that Biden’s White House and Members of Congress provide direct relief to the American people, enact sweeping democracy reform, and pass a historic jobs bill to combat the climate crisis.

January 21st Day of Action

On January 21st and beyond, we’ll demand that the Biden Administration and Congress:

1. Deliver direct relief to people, not to corporate CEOs or fossil fuel polluters.
2. Put an end to Republican minority rule and ensure a true multiracial democracy that works for all of us.
3. Create millions of good jobs, reverse systemic inequality, and put a halt to the climate crisis through a historic green recovery.

Take Action With your Local Hub

We’ll gather at Members of Congress offices, or at their homes, to make sure they hear our demands loud and clear. We will hold rallies and marches, take non-violent direct action and give our elected officials a wake up call. People power put Joe Biden in the White House and gave Democrats the edge in Congress. And now, people power is going to force our elected officials to make the change we need.
