Sen Sanders and Rep Ocasio-Cortez Plan to Push Green New Deal at Rally

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

Presidential 2020 candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) are planning to participate in a rally at Howard University to push the Green New Deal.

The rally on May 13 is being organized by the Sunrise Movement and it’s part of a nationwide tour to promote the Green New Deal.

The Hill reports:

Monday’s rally at Howard University will mark the end of the Sunrise Movement’s nationwide “Road to a Green New Deal Tour.” About 1,500 people are expected to attend, including Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.), who introduced the Green New Deal earlier this year with Ocasio-Cortez.

The Sunrise Movement posted a promotional video for the tour.

The Sunrise Movement will continue to promote the Green New Deal at the presidential debate planned in Detroit and the organization wants to take advantage of the upcoming elections to “make the 2020 election a referendum on the Green New Deal.”

In 2018, the Sunrise Movement led a protest in Congress soon after Democrats took control of the House of Representatives.

In fact, activists targeted then-Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi and protested at her office.

The plans to make the Green New Deal a big part of the Democrat primary sets up the Sunrise Movement as a leading nemesis for 2020 presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden who is planning a moderate approach to address climate change.
