    Youth-led Climate Crisis Fight Goes After Dems

    Young Activists Are Planning National Protests To Push Democrats On The Climate Crisis; "Now we’re taking the fight out of DC and into communities across America”…

    Zahra Hirji, July 9, 2019 (BuzzFeed)

    “Young climate activists are preparing to launch a sprawling, nationwide campaign to push the Democratic National Committee to allow a presidential primary debate devoted to the climate crisis…At least 1,200 people, including more than 100 high schoolers, have already signed up to rally for a climate debate at local DNC offices in states including Arizona, California, Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania…DNC members could vote on whether to allow a climate debate at their Aug. 22–24 meeting in San Francisco…[They rejected a climate debate in] early June… and barred candidates from participating in outside ones…

    [T]he fact that a DNC committee is now mulling over a resolution to allow one is viewed as a win by debate supporters, notably those with the Sunrise Movement who protested the climate debate ban by camping out for days in front of DNC headquarters in Washington, DC.

    They will be highlighting the Green New Deal — a sweeping 10-year proposal to jointly tackle climate change, the economy, and poverty — and how it can help energize cities like Detroit…In the presidential race, a handful of candidates, including former vice president Joe Biden, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and Inslee have released detailed climate platforms, and even more have spoken about the climate issue on the campaign trial. But only some of the candidates who qualified for the first debate in June even talked about climate change onstage, and of the ones who did, few concrete details were offered…” click here for more
