Ask Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Co-Sponsor the Green New Deal

Petition Text

H.Res. 109 -- the "Green New Deal" -- has 94 House co-sponsors, including 28 from California. Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who represents most of San Francisco and is the leader of House Democrats, should be on that list.

Why is this important?

Every year's newly registered voters enter into political life with greater zeal for dealing with the planet's burgeoning environmental crisis than the prior year's. With the Green New Deal (aka, the Green Dream) we finally have a comprehensive statement of a way forward that leaves no one behind, and puts the right to live in a clean world and the right to make a decent living on equal footing.

H.Res. 109 - https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-resolution/109


Reasons for signing

  • Let Dems impeach Trump if they're determined to do so. But climate change needs attention now--and Pelosi needs to do her part.
  • Bernie Sanders and other progressives are what we all need! The Green New Deal Covers so many issues at once.
  • Pelosi needs a Shove.
