RIGHTS & DEMOCRACY IN MOTION
2020 Women's Rally
At the steps of the State House in Concord, New Hampshire, Rights & Democracy members Jodi Newell and Duaa Zahra shared their story and called for future action.
During the weeks before the 2020 New Hampshire Primary, Rights & Democracy alongside allied organizations publicly pressured Democratic candidates to adopt their climate policies to commit to four actions. They are to:
- Prevent all new fossil fuel infrastructure and the extraction of oil and gas.
- Phase out existing oil and gas production, with a planned, managed decline.
- Promote a just and fair transition for impacted communities and workers.
- Hold fossil fuel companies legally accountable for their role in causing the climate crisis.
Due to this pressure, all candidates amended key elements of their climate policies with varying degrees of success.
