“A Planet To Win – Why We Need a Green New Deal” Book Discussion


7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Join the EIC to discuss this highly acclaimed book by Kate Aronoff, Alyssa Battistoni, Daniel Adana Cohen, & Thea Riofrancos, with a foreword by Naomi Klein.

“This compelling book clearly lays out the arguments for a “Green New Deal,” tying the goals of the climate and sustainability movements to those of the broader labor and social justice movements.  Grounded in the transformative approach of FDR’s New Deal – coupled with the oratory of W.E.B. Dubois, Martin Luther King, Jr. and LGBTQ rights activists – this book is a call-to-arms for everyone concerned about the future of the world.  Rather than focusing on small changes that individuals can make, this book proposes “big and bold ideas” with the understanding that “collective action rather than individual sacrifice is what is required in the face of an existential crisis.”
