The clock is still ticking. It’s been too late to stop climate change from starting, but the future of our planet is still in our hands.
Due to the Federal Infrastructure Bill, an enormous amount of investment is there to be spent on green projects, but we need to articulate a socialist vision for how this money should be spent to prevent cooptation from the NPIC and Green Capital.
In coordination with an ongoing National “GND4PS” Campaign, we must work together to advance anti-capitalist demands for green investment in public education; retrofitting schools to create healthy learning environments, calling on LAUSD and other county institutions to create pressure for green energy, and creating green union jobs in the process. Further, we have the opportunity to build a mass campaign that can engage our members and our base — especially parents — across the county in order to defeat the ongoing threat of privatization and advance a positive vision for fully funding and transforming our public schools and services.
