Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez+ Your Authors @AOC US Representative,NY-14 (BX & Queens). In a modern, moral, & wealthy society, no American should be too poor to live. 💯% People-Funded, no lobbyist💰. She/her. May. 13, 2020 1 min read + Your Authors

After conferring w/ grassroots activists and climate allies, I am accepting @BernieSanders’ nomination to co-chair the Climate Change Unity Task Force with Sec. @JohnKerry.

Our planet is dangerously imperiled, and wherever there are decisions made, the people must have a voice.

I have always believed that real change happens not with a panel or task force, but in everyday people organizing mass movements to demand change.

Yet we should also commit to showing up everywhere- every space where there are decisions &formative conversations - w/ mvmt voices.

I am also encouraged that we‘re not in this fight alone.

To be on a team w/@CathFlowers, @PramilaJayapal, @FlyingWithSara, @AbdulElSayed, @StephanieKelton, @VarshPrakash & others pushing for 21stc public policy means we are in this together.

Inside pressure. Outside organizing.

You can follow @AOC.
