October 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmfree
In a world where crises loom large on the horizon, join us to explore a beautiful, positive vision of the future – a beacon of hope amongst a sea of negativity.
The Green New Deal is bold and ambitious in its vision, providing the solutions to the climate crisis that go hand in hand with solutions for social justice, a prosperous future for all that is in sync, not conflict, with environmental limits.
