Green New Deal Town Hall with Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley

Date: April 20, 2019

Time: 3:00 to 5:00 pm

Location: First Church in Jamaica Plain, 6 Eliot Street

The JP Forum, in conjunction with sponsors including BCEC, presents Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley and the Rev. Mariama White-Hammond to discuss the challenges of working for a just transition that includes how we build an equitable economy that lifts people out of poverty and also lives within the ecological boundaries of the earth.

The ecological and economic justice challenges of our time require all of us to work for an equitable, healthy, and livable planet for all. Responding to our environmental crisis must be done in a way that bridges Boston’s racial divide. A just and sustainable transition must follow the leadership of women of color who have helped move forward many critical issues in our current political environment. Women of color leading the way!
