PAST EVENT: 2019-05-28: The Green New Deal: Bringing Climate Justice Home

You’ve probably heard the term “Green New Deal.” But how exactly can a Green New Deal stop climate change – and what can you do to help in your own community?

Join us for an informative and inspiring evening with special guests from 350Mass and the Sunrise Movement as we explore climate change and the potential of a Green New Deal. You’ll leave with a better understanding of the wider impacts of climate change in Melrose and beyond, and more empowered to make a difference in the fight for climate justice.

Musical Introduction by Georgia Bowder-Newton.
