Road to the Green New Deal Tour

The Sunrise Movement has been extraordinary at mobilizing youth and adults to support the Green New Deal. That includes getting Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Ed Markey to launch the Green New Deal resolution, which now has 103 co-sponsors. Today, I attended the Boston tour stop of the “Green New Deal tour,” during which sunrise will convene gatherings around the country to continue to build energy, gain new allies and raise some money. The speaker list was impressive, including Senator Markey, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, the Reverend Mariama White-Hammond and Boston City Council President Michelle Wu. But I couldn’t help taking this picture of Varshini Prakash, the young co-founder and executive director of the Sunrise Movement.
