Join Us For A “Green New Deal” Town Hall!

Everyone’s heard the phrase “Green New Deal”  – but how many actually know what it is?  On Sat., May 11th, from 10:00 a.m. to noon, Pennridge High School will be the scene of a Green New Deal Town Hall. Several experts in the field will present facts and answer questions about this sweeping proposal to build the infrastructure of the future.  Vera Cole, President of the Mid-Atlantic Renewable Energy Association, Jennifer Isaacs, Chair of the Bucks County Green Party, and  Russell Zerbo, a representative of the Clean Air Council, will speak about various aspects of the Green New Deal and take questions from the audience.

The Green New Deal, (House Resolution 109) was introduced into the House of Representatives by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and into the Senate by Sen. Ed Markey on Feb. 7, 2019.  Its stated goals include cleaning up American energy policies while helping American workers transition to cleaner industries, creating millions of good, high wage jobs, rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure for a cleaner, safer future, and promoting justice and equity for oppressed Americans.The media by and large has ignored the actual substance of the resolution, focusing instead on whose political campaigns and careers it will affect.

This Town Hall will clarify the core elements of the Green New Deal, and discuss how, like FDR’s “New Deal” in the 1930s, which pulled America out of the Great Depression, this one will move us into a more prosperous, cleaner future. Whether you are for or against the idea of the Green New Deal, learning about it from experts in the field will help you understand the impact these policies could have on our lives. Come to the “LGI Room” (the “old” auditorium) at Pennridge High School.
