AOC, CORI BUSH OUTSIDE DNC DEMANDING ACTION: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey speak at a rally outside the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee to demand bold action in addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, the economic crisis, and the global climate crisis. They will be joined by Reps. Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, and Ro Khanna; Representative-elects Cori Bush, Jaamal Bowman, and Mondaire Jones; as well as a coalition of community activists and climate advocates. These progressive leaders, all supporters of the Green New Deal, have frequently called for immediate financial relief during the pandemic, as well as a greater federal support for businesses, schools, and local communities. AOC also served on President-elect Biden’s climate policy panel to help shape his plan to combat the climate crisis, which is a $2 trillion plan that calls for 100% clean electricity in the U.S. by 2035.
