Tell Rep. Debbie Dingell to Support a Green New Deal

Date: 
Thu, Apr 18, 2019 - 3:30pm to 5:00pm

City:

Beginning in December 2018, Sunrise has had several meetings with Rep. Debbie Dingell's staff in Washington DC and Ypsilanti, MI. In January, we met with Rep. Dingell herself. She has yet to endorse the Green New Deal resolution (that currently has 91 House Co-Sponsors and 12 Senate Co-sponsors). Additionally, the majority of the Democratic Presidential Candidates supports this resolution. In February, the voters of the Michigan Democratic Party passed a resolution supporting a Green New Deal.

The Trump Administration has proposed to replace the 2015 Clean Water Rule with a rule that would strip protections from nearly 20% of the nations streams and over 50% of the nation's wetlands.
