This Earth Day -- A Powerful Message from AOC on the Green New Deal

Apr 22, 2019

Some days it feels like the best thing we can accomplish is nothing at all.

With a climate denier in White House and a coal lobbyist running the EPA, simply resisting their attacks is a full-time engagement.

As we celebrate Earth Day facing an urgent climate crisis and a federal government that refuses to act, it’s hard not to feel hopeless.

This week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez released this powerful 7-minute video that imagines what the world could look like if we pass a Green New Deal and defeat the politics of pollution.

It’s powerful. It’s possible. And simply put, it gives me hope. I hope you’ll find it as moving as we do.

Watch the video here, share it with a friend, and help us build a movement.

Together, we will take on the politics of pollution and win.
