Tens of millions of people are out of work as unemployment approaches Great Depression levels. To tackle this economic crisis, we cannot follow the Trump fantasy – simply reopen the economy and hope things return to “normal.” “Normal” was fundamentally unjust, unhealthy, and unstable. Instead, we need to put millions of people back to work building a healthier, more equitable, clean energy economy that leaves no one behind.
