Town Hall Meeting for a Green New Deal

This Friday, April 19

Mead Chapel

6:00 – 8:00p

Sunrise Middlebury would like to welcome you to a Vermont Town Hall on the Green New Deal.  The town hall will offer the opportunity to listen to presentations on the Green New Deal for Vermont and the U.S. as well as the Sunrise movement. Participants are encouraged to share stories about the impacts of climate change and discuss what a Green New Deal could mean for Vermont. 

Many people are inspired by the vision of a Green New Deal. And history has shown us that the sweeping societal change we’re calling for with the Green New Deal can only be won with an alignment of political and social movements that establish the political ‘common sense,’ and advance a shared agenda for society. We know we can’t do this alone! Town Halls are an opportunity to build relationships and power with other organizations and movements who share our values and have interest in the Green New Deal.

Click here for the Facebook event page.  Location is subject to change and updates will be posted there as the planning process unfolds.
