Green New Deal
My pledge is to sign on the Green New Deal day one in office.
We support the one trillion-dollar infrastructure revitalization package. This will bring redevelopment to a scale not seen since the New Deal. I have been an environmental activist from the moment I understood that human society is the cause of the climate crisis. I will never stop fighting to ensure the climate crisis is addressed, and we take bold action. I have lead marches against Monsanto, I have been a canvass director for Environment California, and I have been vegan for over three years. I will be running on a platform to work with farmers to transform our food systems to be more sustainable and diverse.
Ending all Subsidies from industries that DESTROY our ENVIRONMENT
Ending animal agriculture subsides
Ending fossil fuel subsides
Ending large scale corporate farming subsides
Ending tax incentives to companies that produce single use plastic (outside of medical use), styrofoam, and other substances that creates large pollution issues.
A $73 tax on every ton of CO2 produced by industry would create $300 billion in revenue a year.
We believe the FDA deserves funding to guarantee disease-free food safety. Food safety is also ensuring that the food we eat is beneficial to long term health using science-based research. We will fight to ensure that plant-based options are available in all schools and hospitals across the country. We will also advocate for a more streamlined inspection process that limits the amount of administrative tasks that have to be done by the farmers themselves.
Construction alongside public transit hubs
We support the Green New Deal, which will increase mass public transit that spans the entirety of the United States in order to bring down CO2 emissions. This growth in public transit will lead to new construction.
Environmentally responsible construction
We must only build with the environment in mind, and I will fight to make certain we end all new construction of non-renewable energy plants. We should only construct in accordance to the framework set forth in the Green New Deal.
