Social distancing doesn’t mean that we should disengage from collective action! The real change happens when Hoosiers work together! Today I join the Youth Climate Accord in demanding the following of our representatives:
1. Establish a concrete and binding Climate Action Plan. 2. Transition the state to 100% renewable energy by 2030, with an emphasis on solar and wind power. Transform Indiana industrial plants to the production of solar panels, wind turbines, and electric cars. 3. Expand access to public transportation, through public funding for bus systems, light rail, bike lanes, and pedestrian-only streets/pathways. 4. Environmental justice for all Hoosiers, including an equitable transition for workers and reparations for the people of color, indigenous peoples, and all those marginalized communities. 5. Scientifically accurate and mandatory climate curriculum in every elementary, middle, and high school.
