Election Day 2020 represents a pivotal point in the United States and the world. As an award-winning advocate for global justice and human rights, Dr. Paul Zeitz, author of “Waging Justice,” is launching efforts to “Build A Movement 2020,” which aims to mobilize urgent and bold action to achieve climate-smart sustainable development, restoration of a healthy climate; gender equality; revitalized democracy; end of AIDS; and the end child sexual abuse and incest.
Dr. Zeitz stated, “The U.S. election in only 621 days, perhaps more than any other in living memory, will present a chance to transform the dangerous collapsing trajectory of our political systems, our environment, and our society. Everything is up for grabs”
“Build A Movement 2020” calls for the passage of comprehensive legislation at the federal, state, and local levels to rapidly accelerate climate restoration and the rapid transition to 100% clean and renewable energy to ensure our planet is habitable for future generations and to create jobs, end poverty, upgrade infrastructure, and generate economic opportunity. Bold action is required to implement the sustainable development goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Accord — the world’s ambitious agendas for achieving social, economic, environmental, gender, and racial justice by 2030.
