Hey, Jeanne,

Thanks for being part of our launch of the Solidarity School and the fight for a Just Recovery!

On our first call, we talked about the connections between the climate crisis, systemic racism, and economic injustice. We heard more about why we need a just recovery and examples of organizing that can make this possible.

These are 350.org’s principles for a just recovery in the US. Please share and discuss with friends, family, and colleagues.

You can also check out the call recording here and a transcript of the call here.

If you’re feeling excited to start building a just future, we invite you to take these next steps:

  1. Contact your Senators today (and ask others to do the same) about the need to pass the HEROES Act & the REWIND Act. Here’s the social media toolkit.
  2. Review, share, and integrate 350’s Just Recovery Principles into your organizing.
  3. Initiate conversations about the need for a just recovery. These are some ideas for having conversations about a just recovery:
    • Ask: What does a Just Recovery look like, and mean, for you? Share what it looks like and means to you.
    • Find out what’s at stake for the person you’re speaking with (do they have a family member who’s had to work during the pandemic, etc).
    • Connect what they shared with why we’re fighting for a Just Recovery.
    • Offer next steps and actions they can take.
