You’re Invited: GASP Joining Sunrise Pittsburgh, Fellow Environmentalists for Green New Deal Discuss
Updated: Sep 14
Mark your calendars, because we want to formally invite you to a discussion about the Green New Deal hosted by Sunrise Pittsburgh slated for this Sunday, Jan. 26.
GASP Executive Director Rachel Filippini will be among those speaking at the event, which is the second in a series and that will include discussion of climate change and pollution in our region. Other presenters will include Zachary Barber of Penn Environment and Jay Ting Walker of Clean Air Council.
Attendees can expect discussion about policy, as well as the systemic changes needed to support a healthy environment and atmosphere—and to repair the harm done to front-line communities.
Organizers suggest participants to arrive at about 4:30 p.m. for refreshments. The presentations begin at 5 p.m. (they also suggest bringing your own plate, silverware, and cup).
The discussion will be held at the Human Service Building downtown. There is plenty of free parking in the back of the building. Please note that the only entrance is off Fort Pitt Boulevard. When you arrive at the gate at that entrance, press the intercom and tell security that you are there for the Green New Deal discussion. If security doesn’t answer, attendees are asked to call 412-518-7378.
