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.

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.

City:

What's one of the most important ways to influence a Senator?
Flood their phone lines.

Join Sunrise Ann Arbor in calling Senator Peters to demand that he support a Green New Deal. We'll be tabling all week on the U of M campus to build support, and end the week with a full inbox for his staff.

Mitch McConnell wants to stop our momentum in its tracks by calling an early vote--he picked the wrong movement mess with. Our job is to make sure Senator Peters votes in favor of climate justice.
