“ You cannot uneducate the person who has learned to read. You cannot humiliate the person who feels pride. You cannot oppress the people who are not afraid anymore. ” – César Chávez, UFW

Executive Director of Nation's Largest Online Latinx Organizing Group Responds to Green New Deal Resolution

Feb. 7, 2019

Statement from Matt Nelson, Executive Director, Presente.org:

"Famed labor leader and trade unionist Eugene Debs once said, 'The earth is for all the people. That is the demand.’ We couldn’t agree more. Clean air, fresh water, and safe housing are fundamental human rights, which are under constant threat from the unrelenting climate crisis. Families across the country deserve to live in safe communities, free from climate devastation and harmful fossil fuel production; and we deserve a Congress that is not afraid to protect our climate and all the people. A strong Green New Deal would set us on a path toward the world we want and need.”

With more than 500,000 member-activists, Presente.org is the nation’s largest online Latinx organizing group; advancing social justice with technology, media, and culture.
