GREEN NEW DEAL
Wednesday, Feb 6th 
 




Feature Heading
                       
                                             
  What is the Green New Deal? 
The term "Green New Deal" traces its roots to columnist Thomas L. Friedman of the New York Times, who dedicated two 2007 pieces to American reliance on foreign oil - which he suggested was as much a national security issue as an environmental one. It recalls President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal, the widespread financial reforms and economic stimulus effort he instituted in the wake of the Great Depression, efforts that included job creation as a means of improving  infrastructure.
The United Nations adopted the term in 2008 and published it in its Green Economy Initiative, a response to the global financial crises striking at that time. Green Party candidate Jill Stein used the Green New Deal as part of her presidential platforms in 2012 and 2016. Ocasio-Cortez considered alternatives to the term throughout her House campaign but decided to stick with it when it continued to generate support on Twitter.
Now, thanks in part to her prominence, the Democratic takeover of the House and growing alarm over climate change, the concept has found new life.

Refugee Civil Rights Attorney Tuition
Souad was a civil rights attorney in Syria before fleeing with family. Her goal is to continue her life's work of standing up for those in need. Please help!


Souad spent her life as a practicing civil rights attorney in Syria, standing up for those in need. When her family had to flee the violence back home to start over in the U.S., she didn't give up. She learned English and now works hard many hours each week supporting her parents, siblings, and herself. Her calling in life is to represent others like herself who need qualified legal support. To restart her life's work as a civil rights attorney here, she is attending graduate school in addition to her full-time job, with the goal of taking the U.S. bar exam.

Please help Souad to help others! She has only one semester left!
She is very, very close to completing her Masters of Arts in Social Justice in Detroit but needs the tuition for her last semester to be able to graduate with her classmates in her cohort. Please help Souad and those she will serve in the future, by donating the tuition dollars and fees that will make it possible for her to finish her degree.
