S1 Ep1 | The Pelosi Sit-In
Manage episode 272082189 series 2782650
In the past two years, climate change has gone from the backburner to the center stage. Why? It all started with a protest in Nancy Pelosi’s office in 2018. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez teamed up with a then-obscure youth activist group called Sunrise Movement to launch the fight for a Green New Deal. It took a lot of planning, courage, and also luck to make it happen, and we’re bringing you the inside story.
Featuring Varshini Prakash and Sarah Duckett of Sunrise Movement and Waleed Shahid of Justice Democrats.
