21nov7:00 pm9:00 pmEvent OverHowie Hawkins at SUNY PlattsburghHowie Hawkins Talks About The "Green" Green New Deal


Event Details

Join the original Green New Dealer, Howie Hawkins, for a public forum at 7 pm in 200 Yokum Hall open to community members and other SUNY Plattsburgh students, faculty and staff. There, Hawkins will deliver an in-depth presentation on what he calls the “real” Green New Deal—differentiating it from what many of the Democratic presidential candidates are currently calling for—while tackling other pressing environmental, socio-economic and foreign-policy issues facing the nation and the planet.
Hawkins is a resident of Syracuse whose three runs for Governor of New York in 2010, 2014 and 2018 put and kept the Green Party on the state ballot. A co-founder of the Green Party in the United States, he helped write the national Green Party platform plank in 2000 that was the origin of the Green New Deal and, in fact, Howie was the first U.S. candidate to run on a fully developed Green New Deal, in 2010—combining an Economic Bill of Rights with a call for going to 100% clean, renewable energy (i.e., no fossil fuels) by 2030.
Admission to the public forum is free, and all are welcome. To learn more about the event, please contact Fred Balzac—himself a student in the “Environmental Politics” class—at 518-588-7275 and/or or Dr. Gervich at 540-818-1896 (cell), 518-564-4030 (office),
