Rep. Jamaal Bowman introduces the GND for Public Schools Bill alongside Senator Ed Markey

About the Campaign

It’s no secret that public schools in the U.S. are severely lacking. To address this, Representative Jamaal Bowman and Senator Ed Markey have introduced the Green New Deal for Public Schools Act. By investing $1.6 trillion in future generations, a GND for Public Schools would create historic investments in a just, climate-safe education system, create 1.3 million good-paying jobs, and reduce carbon emissions by 78 million metric tons each year!
