OUR GENERATION, OUR CHOICE...

1000 MILLENNIALS TOOK THE STREETS FOR JUSTICE ON RACE, CLIMATE, IMMIGRATION

 

On November 9th, a wave of people power swept over Washington, DC. In an epic demonstration of unity, 1,000 millennials took the streets for justice on race, climate, and immigration.

 

We’ve built a powerful new alliance across our movements — the kind we need to change the landscape of what’s politically possible in this country. This mobilization brought together a truly unprecedented coalition: the movements for climate justice, for black lives, for prison and fossil fuel divestment, for immigrant justice, and beyond.

Together, we share a vision for a new, better economy that works for all of us: one that keeps fossil fuels in the ground; protects the lives of black, brown, poor, and immigrant communities; and reinvests in healthy jobs and renewable energy.

We don’t live single-issue lives. We live at the intersection of the most pressing problems today. Our movements are connected and our purpose is huge.

If we want to win, then we must build power together. We’re going to use this momentum to keep building the power we need — this is just the beginning.
