The Green New Deal: A Game Changer?
The Green New Deal is a bold and visionary set of ideas for climate action getting attention and traction in Washington. Can it gain real momentum and result in meaningful federal legislation for a healthier economy and country? Come learn from individuals on the front line.

Corte Madera Community Center, 498 Tamalpais Dr., Corte Madera
7:00–9:00pm Doors open at 6:15pm for conversation and snacks on the outdoor patio. Early arrival encouraged.
According to the recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), humanity has just over a decade to get carbon emissions under control before catastrophic climate change impacts become unavoidable.
A bold resolution has been put forward in Washington: The Green New Deal (GND). Modeled after the 1930s New Deal, the GND proposes massive investment in clean energy, green jobs, equitable opportunities, and infrastructure meant to transform not just the energy sector, but the entire economy. Proponents of the GND legislation want to decarbonize the economy and increase equity and social justice.
This program will cover:
- An update on climate policy from Washington DC
- The Sunrise Movement and the youth perspective on the GND
- What we can learn from the 1930's New Deal
- Is the GND imperative? What if Washington does not act?
- What are the potential pitfalls and where is the opposition?
- What is the role of the public?
The evening will offer an opportunity to learn more from people on the front lines of the GND, including the Sunrise Movement, a nascent but rapidly expanding group of young people advocating to stop climate change and create millions of good jobs in the process.
