Today, we face an existential crisis in the form of irreversible climate change. This is the culmination of politicians’ choices to support an economic system that’s doing exactly what it was programmed to do: create wealth through the exploitation of workers and the degradation of the environment, while fueling unsustainable levels of consumption… I will help shape and support a Green New Deal that prepares for the looming climate crisis. While doing this, we will be ushering in a new economic system with a job guarantee program, enhanced worker protections, and Medicare for All… We cannot trust the wealthy to change a system from which they profit. 

~ Albert Lee
