Friday Green New Deal Rallies at Rep. Peters! @ Rep. Peters' Office
Jul 19 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

We’ve asked Rep. Scott Peters to show us he’s a climate leader by taking three simple steps: 1) cosponsor the Green New Deal; 2) sign the No Fossil Fuel Money pledge; 3) host a town hall meeting on climate change. 

Although Representatives Levin, Vargas and Davis have cosponsored the Green New Deal, Rep. Peters has yet to take action. 

So, as part of the Raise the Alarm Campaign, SanDiego350 is leading rallies outside his office every single Friday, until he does. 

We will continue to Raise the Alarm until the Green New Deal is adopted. There is strength in numbers! Join us, make your voice heard, and help us spread the word.
