Longer term goals for the campaign include:
Bring the Green New Deal into the classroom. Working with school teachers and community groups, we will develop a series of popular educational trainings and materials. These are intended to de-mystify topics that are made unnecessarily complex by entrenched corporate interests and bureaucracies, such as how energy systems work.
Pro-actively build relationships to break down barriers across sections of the climate movement, especially between university-centered organizing and community/environmental justice struggles.
Help the climate justice movement build a powerful platform for the democratic intake of opinions and arguments for what a Green New Deal should include and avoid.
