The climate crisis requires a rapid and far-reaching response. Economic crisis and social injustice require a response that addresses the climate crisis at the same time. A Green New Deal is a sweeping set of changes that demands radical, systemic change that leaves no one behind. MEJC engages in advocacy and education to help secure a pan-Canadian Green New Deal as a central piece of Canada’s Covid-19 response.
Our priorities are:
- 70% emissions reductions by 2030
- Centering Black, Indigenous, People of Colour
- Indigenous Sovereignty
- Social Justice
- A just transition
- International Solidarity and Migrant Justice
MEJC stands with allied organizations locally and nationally in the fight for a Green New Deal and builds support by engaging in local outreach activities. Join the MEJC mailing list to find opportunities to get involved, or come to our weekly meetings.
