AYD May Meeting

The Green New Deal is coming to Virginia!

If you believe that climate change is a scientific fact, that we should do something about it, and that the Green New Deal can be a vehicle for that change, then we look forward to seeing you at AYD’s Green New Deal Forum.

The Green New Deal Forum will take place on May 15 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at Key Elementary School, 2300 Key Boulevard.

The first half of the Forum will feature a Panel of important stakeholders and advocates, including:
Delegate Rasoul and Delegate Guzman – Co-founders of Green New Deal Virginia Coalition
Karen Campblin – Co-chair of Green New Deal Virginia and Climate Justice Chair for the Virginia chapter of the NAACP
Josh Stanfield – Activate Virginia

The second half of the Forum will have attendees divide into working groups, and develop an official AYD Green New Deal Resolution, compiling our values and priorities so we may focus our advocacy in Richmond come the 2020 Session!

If you have any further questions, please contact our Outreach Director, Sacha Brenac, at outreach@arlingtonyoungdems.org.
