The House and Senate Green New Deal Resolutions have provoked much contention and debate. The debates are heated, some see the Deal as a limit to economic growth – impossible to accomplish, while others have viewed it as a force for change for our economy and environment. The recent focus on the current Green New Deal offers an opportunity for dialogue. All sides can share and determine what is possible and feasible. The hype and rhetoric can be separated from what is achievable. A willingness to be open-minded and make the effort to understand the GND makes sense. Each of our speakers will bring their specific expertise on the issues of labor relations, job creation or destruction, the significance of inequality in driving climate change, state and local economic outcomes as well as economic and social justice outcomes. Let’s start this conversation.
