Howie Hawkins is the original Green New Dealer! Howie was the first candidate to run on a fully developed Green New Deal in 2010, combining an Economic Bill of Rights to jobs, income, housing, health care, and education with 100% clean energy by 2030 in order to reconstruct the economy for economic justice and climate safety. He is also one of the original Greens in the United States, having participated in the first national meeting to organize a US Green Party in St. Paul, Minnesota in August 1984.
The nation is facing an economic and health crisis under the coronavirus pandemic. The police murder of George Floyd has inspired thousands of people to take to the streets to demand an end to police murder and abuse in Black and Brown communities. Trump is incompetent; Biden is nowhere to be found and offers no real solutions. We need a socialist revolt! Not only on the streets but also at the ballot box as well! Howie will talk about the life and death issues that this campaign is demanding be on the table and how he offers a real socialist choice so that progressives don’t get “lost in the sauce” of the Democratic Party and their pro-corporate, neoliberal agenda.
This Zoom event with Howie starts at 8 p.m. Eastern Time, 7 p.m. Central Time, 6 p.m. Mountain Time and 5 p.m. Pacific Time.
