The Leap, CCPA Manitoba, Our Time, MEJC, and more are joining forces to build a wave of popular support behind the Green New Deal in Canada.

The Green New Deal is an exciting new vision to tackle climate change by creating an economy and society that runs on renewable energy, inclusivity, democracy, and justice.

Join us on June 22nd for an event in Winnipeg that’s part of a 7-tour across Canada, bringing together ideas, art, and community for bold action.

Doors open at 6:30pm, event starts at 7pm.

Nora Casson – Co-director of the Prairie Climate Centre
Jenna Liiciious – Organizer with AYO!
Avi Lewis – Co-founder of the Leap

We’ll hear about:
How the climate crisis is affecting our community
Who’s responsible for the mess we’re in, and
How the Green New Deal can build a better life for all

The evening will close with a ‘barnstorm’ led by Our Time – Winnipeg.

We’re going to fall in love with what’s possible. And we’re going to lay out our plan to win — together.
