Deliver Green New Deal Petitions to Mark DeSaulnier (Walnut Creek)
Wednesday, February 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
As presidential hopefuls begin to announce their candidacies and our new Congress works to define their priorities, this is a key moment to keep up the pressure for real climate leadership and a Green New Deal.
That’s why on Wednesday February 6 at noon, we’re joining a national day of action and bringing the call for real climate leadership to Congressman Mark DeSaulnier’s doorstep. (Representative DeSaulnier of Contra Costa County has not yet committed to a Green New Deal.) We will ramp up our call for a Green New Deal by publicly calling on our elected leaders to commit to a just and equitable transition to a world free from fossil fuels, support green jobs, reject fossil fuel money, and endorse a Green New Deal.
We’ve already seen the power of activists mobilizing in the halls of Congress to change the future of climate politics and make the Green New Deal a possibility. Let’s keep it up.
Please remember that your bags will be searched etc. as you enter the building.
We’ll gather in front of the office on Wednesday, February 6, at 12 PM. We’ll hear from local climate justice leaders, sign petitions, then deliver the petitions calling on Congressman DeSaulnier to step up and be the real climate leader we need.
