Bold Alliance Statement in Support of Green New Deal

Hastings, NE — Bold Alliance issued the following statement on Thursday, in support of the Green New Deal resolution introduced in Congress by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey:

Bold works with family farmers and ranchers who confront climate change every single day implementing solutions ranging from biofuels to installing wind and solar. Fossil fuel corporations have abused eminent domain for their private gain hurting farms and increasing climate change. Rural communities are proud to be at the table to ensure the Green New Deal lifts up all of our families on the frontlines and we stand with other communities like Tribal Nations ready to provide solutions for the climate crisis facing our nation,” said Jane Kleeb, Bold Alliance president.
