Have you seen the trailer for Generation Green New Deal yet?

The filmmakers at Tikkun Olam Productions have been following us for the last year, shooting dozens of scenes across the country. They’ve spent time with frontline organizers in Detroit and New Orleans fighting for a Green New Deal, gotten behind the scenes at Sunrise actions, and interviewed key Green New Deal thinkers like Naomi Klein, Rhiana Gunn-Wright, and Bill McKibben

We have made the climate crisis a top issue in American politics and gotten every major Democratic presidential candidate behind the Green New Deal. But the fact is, we still have a lot of work to do to build public support for the Green New Deal.

That’s why this film is a big deal. And it’s why we’re excited to be showing a sneak preview of it at our 2020 Launch Parties later this month.

The only way we will stop this crisis is if millions of people across the country understand the Green New Deal and start to imagine its transformative potential for their lives and their communities. We think Generation Green New Deal is going to communicate the stakes of the climate crisis and the promise of the Green New Deal in a way that no film has ever done.

Making films takes money, and the filmmaking team is raising money to help them finish the film. Will you join in donating to their fundraising campaign to help them make Generation Green New Deal into everything it can be?

And if you want to see a sneak preview of the film, sign up to host a 2020 watch party on Jan 29th.

Let’s make 2020 the year that millions of Americans begin to tell their own Green New Deal stories.
