What a whirlwind couple of weeks it’s been! From Vancouver to Halifax, The Leap traveled coast to coast for 6 SOLD OUT STOPS of our Green New Deal for All Tour.

To those of you who could join us in person, thank you for showing that thousands of people are ready to fight for a Green New Deal rooted in justice and Indigenous sovereignty.

And to everyone we heard from, who wants to be part of this growing movement but couldn’t make it out to an event in person, we have something for you!

Watch a recording of the Vancouver event here, including speeches from Kanahus Manuel, Harsha Walia, David Suzuki, and Avi Lewis, and an exhilarating performance by Kimmortal.

This is the movement we’ve been waiting for, and working towards, for years. Like the Leap Manifesto, the Green New Deal is a jobs and justice program that offers solutions to the climate crisis that are actually as big and bold as we need. But this time around, the Green New Deal is being pushed by a massive, multi-generational movement.

As Naomi Klein said when she kicked off our tour in Toronto, “When the future of life is at stake, there is nothing we cannot achieve. We will win a Green New Deal. We will win it because we have to.”

Watch Naomi’s full speech from our very first tour stop in Toronto: five reasons why the Green New Deal is workable, winnable, and an idea whose time has come.

The tour may have ended, but our work is far from over. Thank you again for making our last two weeks so powerful — we’re excited and determined to keep fighting for a Green New Deal for All with you.
