Sunrise Movement’s Gulf Coast Trek Highlights Need for a Civilian Climate Corps

This op-ed explains how the Sunrise Movement’s 400-mile trek is meant to drum up support for a Civilian Climate Corps and Green New Deal.

We’re angry that Biden and Congress have not done more to combat the imminent threat of climate change. We are angry that we are being neglected at a time when many of us are under- or unemployed. We are marching because right now, we have an economy that places profits over the well-being of Black and brown communities. We are marching through the sweltering summer heat because we need good jobs and real solutions to save our planet. We are rising up like the individual flames of a generation on fire.
