Sunday, September 20, 2020. New York City – Today, Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate for President joined the March for Climate and Racial Justice in Manhattan, New York City.
People gathered at Columbus Circle and marched to Times Square.
Howie Hawkins outlined 7 key initiatives: Green New Deal, Economic Bill of Rights, Medicare for All, Homes for all, Democratic Community Control of the Police, Reparations for African-American rights, and Honor Indigenous Treaty Rights.
“People of color and low-income communities are the principal victims of climate change. We face this existential threat to our future since the leaders of both major parties, in exchange for campaign contributions, allow fossil fuel companies and others to pollute and exploit such communities. We can not solve climate change without system change, including ending racial injustice,” said Hawkins, the first US candidate to campaign for a Green New Deal in his 2010 race for Governor of New York.

Peoples Climate Movement – NY said on Twitter, “We are thankful for the hundreds of folks who joined us in the street today. We appreciate our safety team for keeping us safe. And we send our deep gratitude to the Black, Brown, and Indigenous leaders who organized today’s demo.”
On Friday, September 18, 2020, Howie Hawkins spoke in favor of a federal Stock Transfer Tax in front of the New York Stock Exchange.
“Hawkins, a three-time gubernatorial nominee for the Greens, has long advocated that New York stop rebating the century-old state stock transfer tax to Wall Street speculators and use the funds to invest in domestic needs, such as saving local governments, climate mitigation, workers, small businesses, school and hospitals. Hawkins will march over to City Hall at noon to speak about the state’s fiscal crisis, with Cuomo imposing a 20% cut in aid to local governments and schools. Hawkins will call on de Blasio to support the Stock Transfer Tax and urge Cuomo to do so too.”
On Saturday, September 19, 2020, Hawkins held a socially-distanced, fundraiser in the Bronx. Howie was joined by Margaret Kimbrely. Watch the video below.
