Road to a Green New Deal: Kentucky Tour Stop
400 E Main St, Frankfort, KY 40601, USA
Join us at the Kentucky Tour Stop, on the Road to a Green New Deal! At this Tour Stop, we'll explore what the pain of the climate crisis looks like for Kentucky and the nation, and what the promise of the Green New Deal will look like, too. We'll hear from political champions, and community and movement leaders, using multimedia presentations and regular conversations. We'll set the roadmap to 2021 and beyond, discovering what the GND means for each of us — and what action we'll take to make it happen. This event is sponsored by the Sunrise Movement and Sunrise Kentucky, with our local partners Kentuckians for the Commonwealth (KFTC) and SEIU 32BJ.
