Confronting the Climate Crisis

The climate crisis is here and our environmental justice communities are already, disproportionately, on the frontlines.

Ayanna knows it’s time for a Green New Deal, developed in partnership with communities most impacted, to fundamentally transform our political and economic systems, prioritize the preservation of our planet, mitigate the worst impacts of climate change, and help our communities adapt, prepare, and build a more resilient future.
