Keynote speakers at our June 30th launch include Senator Bernie Sanders, Represenative Ayanna Pressley, Varshini Prakash of the Sunrise Movement, Representative Ro Khanna, and Reverend Mariama White-Hammond.
In the midst of the pandemic, New England faces some of the largest crises the region & nation have ever seen: historic unemployment, inaction on racial justice, and the ever-escalating climate crisis. This moment demands we elect real leaders, who will fight for racial justice, economic justice, and climate justice.
Our “leaders” are failing us, at the federal and state levels. Unemployment is higher than it’s been since the Great Depression. Our elected officials are refusing to address systemic racism, mass incarceration, and police brutality. And they’re refusing to take climate change seriously, even though it’s already threatening New England residents with heat waves, droughts, and coastal flooding. Renew’s plan will reimagine New England from the ground up, starting with a Jobs Guarantee program – providing well-paid, unionized jobs to build affordable housing, renewable energy, community health centers, and a modern, high-speed, interstate mass transit system.
