The Green New Deal for All tour with The Leap and friends starts today, June 11!
Attendees in seven cities will hear how the climate crisis is affecting our communities, who’s responsible for the mess we’re in, how a Green New Deal can build a better life for all, and how to get involved.
Briarpatch is happy to be a media sponsor, and to be hosting an accompanying event in Edmonton on Tuesday, June 18: Indigenous Rights and a Green New Deal.
We’ll also be tabling at each stop of the tour with copies of our Just Transition Issue and discounted subscriptions, so come say hi!

- Montreal on Thursday, June 13
- Ottawa on Friday, June 14
