The Sunrise Movement, whose sit-in in Nancy Pelosi’s office last fall helped create momentum for a Green New Deal, will hold town hall meetings on the Green New Deal in more than 100 cities in April and May.
Speakers will range from members of Congress and local politicians, to people already working to transform local economies, to performers, musicians, and community leaders who are getting behind the movement for a Green New Deal.
They will share plans for the coming months and provide time for discussion of local strategies for educating the public and getting politicians to endorse the Green New Deal.
The town halls will also feature new videos produced by Means of Production, the group behind Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s viral campaign ad, featuring young Sunrise leaders sharing why their communities need a Green New Deal.
