Senator Peters: Back the Green New Deal

Date: 
Tue, Feb 26, 2019 - 3:30pm to 5:30pm

City:

Senator Peters is "thinking about" the Green New Deal.

If he cares about the future of our generation, if he cares about Michigan workers, if he cares about the Great Lakes, if he cares about economic justice, he must support the Green New Deal.

It's the only policy put forward that addresses the climate crisis at the scale science demands and justice requires.

Join us outside Senator Peter's office to rally behind the Green New Deal and call upon him to be a true climate leader.
