Mass Jobs with Justice joined Senator Markey and other elected officials along with other labor, clean energy, climate, and environmental justice leaders at Green Town Labs in Somerville, MA at a Press Conference to announce the Green New Deal. The resolution, introduced yesterday with Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY-14), would create millions of good, high-wage jobs in the United States, provide unprecedented levels of prosperity and economic security for Americans, and counteract systemic injustices – all while addressing the existential challenge of climate change.

The #GreenNewDeal calls for a national mobilization effort not seen since World War II. Its bold, transformative legislative goals are what is needed to address the generational challenge of climate change. Read it for yourself here: https://bit.ly/2HZHmYt
