Yesterday, Mitch McConnell announced he’s bringing the Green New Deal resolution to a vote in the Senate. He’s wagering that he can use this to destroy the momentum for the Green New Deal before we are able to build support in the Senate.
The American people want climate action and a strong economy for all. Mitch McConnell has no plan for either. The Green New Deal is a plan for both, and he knows that if it continues to catch fire it will threaten everything he represents.
We intend to make him regret it. Tonight, we’re launching our plans to fight back.
In the coming weeks, Sunrise Movement’s army of young people will be taking action to urge all Senators who care about our generation’s future to join Senator Markey and the 11 other co-sponsors in supporting the first-ever resolution that rises to the scale and urgency of the climate crisis.
On the call tonight, we’ll go over the in-depth plans, and let you know what you can do. Join us & bring your friends along too.
