We, the undersigned, call on Congress to embrace a bold and just climate action plan. We demand a Green New Deal that is on scale with what the climate crisis requires:
Halt all new fossil fuel extraction, infrastructure, and subsidies, and transition power generation to 100% renewable energy by 2035 or sooner.
Rapidly decarbonize agriculture and transportation sectors and expand access to public transportation.
Ensure a fair and just transition led by affected workers and communities, including low-income communities and communities of color, without relying on market-based mechanisms that put profits over people.
Uphold indigenous rights.
Pass a national jobs guarantee, creating good jobs with collective bargaining and family-sustaining wages.
We have just 12 years to prevent the worst impacts of climate chaos. We can’t afford more half-measures. We need a Green New Deal.
