December 2018 — Congress takeover demand a select committee for a Green New Deal

1000 people from across the country dropped everything and flocked to Washington, DC to keep the pressure on our elected officials. On December 10, 2018, We visited Congress a second time, sharing our stories with lawmakers and urging them to back the select committee for a Green New Deal. Our efforts led to lawmakers such as Rep. Jim McGovern (MA-02) to sign on that day. The idea of a Green New Deal has since been shared with millions thanks to coverage of our action by major publications and television outlets.
