I am 25 years old, and I am motivated.

The latest climate report from the UN says we only have 12 years to transform our economy and preserve the stability of our climate that human civilization depends on to survive.

It is not alarmist and it is not about politics. It is about survival.

A Green New Deal is the only viable proposal on the table. It would create millions of decent jobs and mobilize our society to change for the better by tackling issues of social injustice. It is an overwhelmingly popular initiative. Any presidential candidate who wants to be taken seriously by young people needs to support the resolution.

When our grandkids ask us what we did to change our ways, what will we tell them?

This is a chance to take action and be on the right side of history. It’s not about right vs. left, it’s about prioritizing people over money.
