Climate crisis will be the most pressing issue the next President of the US will face. It is the most critical issue this planet has ever faced.
We are asking the DNC to reconsider their stance on not having a Presidential debate focused on climate change or allow the Candidates to have their own debate focused on the issue.
The climate crisis should be the most prominent issue on all Democratic Candidate’s platforms.
The DNC should be considering the climate crisis as its #1 platform issue as well.
That’s why Our Revolution Helena created a petition to Democratic National Committee, which says:
We are asking the DNC to reconsider their stance on not having a Presidential debate focused on climate change. Climate change is the most pressing and urgent issue the next President will face, we deserve to know what the Candidates have planned to save the planet.
Will you sign this petition?
