Green New Deal

Rep. Susan Davis, D-San Diego, signed on to the Green New Deal on March 2019, following months of phone calls and protests outside her office by local environmental groups.

Activists in the region with SanDiego350, Indivisible and Sunrise Movement have ramped up pressure on local members of Congress to support the climate change proposal since February.

“I definitely think we’re making a difference,” said Masada Disenhouse, executive director of SanDiego350, who help organize numerous protests outside of Davis’ San Diego office. “There’s no question that Representative Davis is cosponsoring the Green New Deal as a direct result of our campaign.”

Davis said that pressure by activists was not a factor in her decision.

“As my constituents know, I always take a deliberative and thoughtful approach to legislation,” she said in an email. “It was important to me to study the bill and consult with experts and colleagues, and listen to my constituents carefully before signing onto such a broad proposal.”

The congresswoman posted the news on Twitter after she cosponsored the resolution, which calls on the federal government to draft legislation aimed at wiping out greenhouse emissions by 2030 while creating jobs in the renewable energy and other sectors.[10]
