Green New Deal advocates in Worcester urge reimagining of FDR’s signature program

Report-in from the Worcester Team: Mothers Out Front co-cooordinator, Gaylen Moore, being interviewed at the Worcester Townhall on the Green New Deal, organized by Sunrise Worcester. Gaylen was interviewed by Telegram and Gazette reporter, Steven Foskett. We tabled at this event, and one of our leaders, Wahya Wolfpaw, an indigenous grandmother, also opened the event with an blessing. 

Gaylen Moore of Worcester is a member of the local chapter of Mothers Out Front, a national environmental advocacy organization. The group has focused locally on raising awareness about unrepaired natural gas leaks near schools and day care centers. But Ms. Moore said Mothers Out Front’s goals are in line with the Green New Deal; she said natural gas is a contributor to climate change.

“We need to shift utilities to clean energy in a way that creates good jobs,” Ms. Moore said.

She said it frustrates her to hear people asking where the money will come from to fund Green New Deal initiatives. She said people need to instead ask what the cost is of doing nothing.
