    Statement on HP City Council Endorsement of Green New Deal

    1.png2.png

    This statement was drafted by Jackson Koeppel and Angela Lugo-Thomas.

    We, the undersigned, affirm and support the Highland Park City Council’s unanimous endorsement of the Green New Deal resolution.

    Highland Park has long suffered racial and economic injustice. We have been starved of the resources we need to redevelop our community, on our terms. We have been taken advantage of and mistreated by corporations and government alike, and it is time for a change.

    We are glad to see the Highland Park City Council take the important symbolic step of endorsing this resolution. But as we know, this resolution is a long ways from becoming policy. It is critical that we take steps as a City to prepare ourselves by taking local action on sustainability planning and democratic community participation.

    Soulardarity is shortly releasing the Blueprint on Energy Democracy, a plan to make Highland Park a global model of sustainability and democracy with a 5-point plan of accountable government, equitable development, healthy homes, jobs & careers, and sustainable infrastructure. We have completed nearly two years of thorough research, democratic community engagement, and partnership development, and have identified numerous programs and policies the City of Highland Park can pursue to make us ready for resources and development, from the Green New Deal and other sources.

    We look forward to building with the City Council and Administration on these opportunities. For too long Highland Park has been left behind and left in the dark. It’s time to create new possibilities, to realize the vision of a just and sustainable community that determines our own future.

    We invite the Council, Administration, and Community to join us on this journey.
