INVESTMENTS in STOCKS & BONDS

Alberder grew up in a rural farming community. She grew up in a place where community possessed a healthy respect for earth and a deep connection to land. A place were the communities survival and livelihood was tied to the earth. She believes our livelihood and survival remain dependent upon our relationship with the planet. The Green New Deal put forth by the Sunrise Movement was constructed with this belief in mind. The resolution offers a comprehensive approach to some of our greatest challenges.
  • Secure clean air and water, climate and community resilience, healthy food, access to nature, and a sustainable environment for all.

  • Create good, high wage jobs; and ensure prosperity and
    economic security for all people of the United States.

  • Invest in the infrastructure and industry of the United States to sustainably meet the challenges of the 21st century.

I felt the urgency as I watched the pandemic expose the deep healthcare, education, housing and economic disparities as well as the growing political divisiveness and expanding partisanship divide. I felt the urgency as I watched workers paid less than a living wage deemed essential, students disadvantaged by the digital divide unable to properly continue their education, and poorest among us unable to access testing and appropriate medical attention.  But the tipping point reached when I watched a human being cry out for his mother as he was callously being murder by those whose job it was to protect and serve. That cry demanded action. That cry demanded an end to the status quo. That cry demanded justice. It was a fierce urgency of now cry that I felt in the very depths of my soul. I heard Mr. Floyd's cry, I am answering the call.
