The Leap is hitting the road in June to build a massive wave of popular support behind the Green New Deal. We’re going on a seven-city tour with artists, activists, and amazing allies — like El Jones, David Suzuki, Kanahus Manuel, Ingrid Waldron, Harsha Walia, Ellen Gabriel, Maude Barlow, and Naomi Klein — to shine a spotlight on this growing movement.

The Leap’s co-founder Avi Lewis has some hopes to share about the radical possibilities of a Green New Deal for our society — and he’s recorded a video message inviting you to join us on tour next month.

Watch Avi’s video invitation, then get your ticket to our Green New Deal for All tour.

Last week, a coalition of workers, artists, Indigenous leaders, scientists, youth, and people directly impacted by climate catastrophe launched the Pact for a Green New Deal in Canada. And in just seven days, tens of thousands of people have signed the pledge to be part of this movement.

Building on that momentum, our tour will popularize the transformative vision of a Green New Deal for All in the lead up to the federal election.

You don’t want to miss this. Get your seat now for The Leap’s cross-Canada tour: A Green New Deal for All.

Like the Leap Manifesto, the Green New Deal is a vision for how the total transformation of our society and economy can tackle climate change while repairing historical harms, reducing current inequalities, and respecting Indigenous rights.

But since we launched the Manifesto four years ago, just ahead of the last federal election, we’ve watched our elected politicians break their climate promises over and over again. We can’t afford to let that happen again. Now is the time to build power behind the solutions we need.

We’re going on tour to make sure a Green New Deal for All is an election issue this October. Join us.

Mark these on your calendar:

Green New Deal set up for Belleville for May 27th at St Thomas Church  for Monday May 27th evening 7 to 9 pm.
Wednesday May 22 at 10 am; Prince Edward County Field Naturalists are visiting Todd Smith’s office, Unit 4, 5503 Hwy. 62 S Belleville on International Biodiversity Day
