The call for a Green New Deal
<https://www.dataforprogress.org/green-new-deal/> put forward by Rep.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez offers an opportunity to create transformative
solutions to the interrelated crises of climate change, racism, xenophobia,
and declining living standards for the majority.

Today, we have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to build a movement that
can make this transformative vision a reality. We need you to *sign up
today <https://goo.gl/forms/JFCy0i9xM2nkW88p2>* to help us.

As the Green New Deal becomes part of the mainstream political discussion,
there will be pressure to water it down, and to prioritize its most
problematic elements over those that “require elected representatives to
think outside of the normally accepted economic, social, industrial, and
commercial parameters” (CJA
<https://climatejusticealliance.org/green-new-deal-must-rooted-just-transition-workers-communities-impacted-climate-change/>
).

The People’s Green New Deal campaign will fight to maintain the radical,
popular promise at the heart of the GND proposal
<https://int.nyt.com/data/documenthelper/604-green-new-deal-resolution/e0c468643280097e630e/optimized/full.pdf#page=1>
from Ocasio-Cortez and the Sunrise Movement and to strengthen the proposal
through democratic input:

We promote solutions and struggles that educate, organize, mobilize, and
directly empower working class people, Indigenous Peoples, historically
oppressed communities, and migrants displaced by climate disaster, in their
everyday lives.

We aim to collaborate with all of those who have developed the core ideas
<https://www.gp.org/gnd_full> of the Green New Deal over the years and
decades, particularly to ensure we understand the role of militarism
<https://www.codepink.org/greennewdeal> in the climate crisis, and to fight
for globally just
<https://www.blackagendareport.com/its-eco-socialism-or-death?fbclid=IwAR0BIzCWQf5hUB9FCIWV3IsEuZoPv_14-7sUSXhnYBqiREtyWT4kK3EdIEU>
solutions.

We stand with frontline communities demanding equitable solutions
<https://climatejusticealliance.org/green-new-deal-must-rooted-just-transition-workers-communities-impacted-climate-change/>
to the climate crisis, so that no member of our society will be forgotten
or unjustly bear the costs of climate change.

We stand with trade unions demanding a Just Transition and the creation of
millions of green jobs,
<http://unionsforenergydemocracy.org/resources/tued-publications/tued-working-paper-11-trade-unions-and-just-transition/>
so
that all people may be able to support their families with dignity.

We call for a transformation of the economy which redistributes resources
from those who led us into this crisis in the first place.

*We will act *to ensure the Green New Deal’s social, industrial, and
economic transitions elevate the voices of workers, people of color,
Indigenous Peoples, women, and migrants. We will lend our technical
expertise to supporting solutions that are driven and controlled by these
communities.

Addressing climate change is not only an urgent moral and ecological
imperative. It is something that, if done right, can vastly improve the
lives of millions, re-orient our society around values of solidarity,
justice, and equality, and build a much more democratic world.
