In August, we’ll travel to Chicago for the Democratic National Convention. Democracy Now! doesn’t accept corporate advertising or sponsorship revenue, and we don’t take money from any government. That means we’re relying on you. Can you donate $15 to Democracy Now! today to support our RNC and DNC coverage—and so much more? Right now, a generous donor will TRIPLE your gift, which means your $15 donation is worth $45. Please do your part to help us air in-depth, substantive coverage of the conventions and the issues that matter most during the 2024 election cycle. Thank you so much—and remember, every dollar makes a difference.

Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Reintroduce Green New Deal for Public Housing Act

HeadlineMar 22, 2024

Senator Bernie Sanders and Congressmember Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reintroduced the Green New Deal for Public Housing Act this week to address the dual crises of climate change and unaffordable housing. This is AOC.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: “The Green New Deal for Public Housing would immediately replenish the multibillion-dollar backlog for public housing repairs. It would repeal the Faircloth Amendment. It would invest up to $234 billion over 10 years to preserve, upgrade and expand our public housing stock. It would bring public housing down to zero carbon emissions, while creating 280,000 jobs in America. It would end the era of government neglect, demolition and privatization of our public housing stock. This bill also addresses unsustainable rent prices.”
