This spring, Grist is teaming up with the Peoples Climate Movement to host a series of discussions about the potential impact of a Green New Deal on communities that are on the front lines of climate change, including communities of color, rural communities, low-income communities, displaced workers and indigenous peoples.
On May 21st, we’ll be hosting a virtual town hall discussion, moderated by Grist journalist Zoya Teirstein, about what a Green New Deal could mean for workers. We’ll be joined by Matt Schlobohm, Executive Director of Maine AFL-CIO, and Alison Hirsh, Political Director of 32BJ SEIU, who will be taking your questions on the challenges that workers face around the transition to a green economy, and what something like the Green New Deal could do to address them. We’ll also discuss how a Green New Deal done correctly could create opportunities for workers, and what a ‘Just Transition’ would really mean.
Tune in online to ask questions and hear what the Green New Deal really is and what it could mean for workers — what’s exciting, and what the debate over it means for our vision of a just and equitable future for climate, jobs and justice.
