The Green New Deal: A proposal to address climate change and inequality
Speakers: Mark Darienzo and Rachel Slocum, volunteers in the 350PDX Green New Deal team
The Green New Deal is a vision to address the climate and inequality crises by using public investment to rapidly reduce emissions, improve collective well-being, and overcome historically-rooted disparities. Speakers will discuss the origins of the Green New Deal, show a short video, and propose what the nation needs to do to make it reality.
This conversation, co-sponsored by the Vernon and Humboldt Neighborhood Associations, is a opportunity for everyone on a local level to discuss this effort, ask questions and envision what this movement could bring to our communities.
