Green Party candidate Jill Stein will make a stop on our little liberal island in a sea of red to discuss her presidential campaign and vision. This is her second run as a nominee; in 2012 Stein won nearly half a million votes. A major focus of her platform is the Green New Deal, which advocates transitioning to clean renewal energy, investing in public transit and sustainable agriculture and enacting stronger environmental justice laws. A strong advocate for community and environmental health, she supports establishing a guaranteed living wage, abolishing student debt, ending the war on drugs and cutting military spending. Her appearance will be hosted by the ACC Green Party in room 101.
