"Now that this resolution is released, we're taking the fight to districts across the country to build the political and public support for the Green New Deal, and get thousands of organizations signed on to back the resolution", said Stephen O'Hanlon, spokesman for the Sunrise Movement, which has pushed for the Green New Deal and staged protests at the Capitol, including a sit-in at Pelosi's office.
Ocasio-Cortez said she was not offended that Pelosi called the resolution "the green dream". The most visible House Democrat on climate change won't get a seat on Nancy Pelosi's select committee addressing the issue. The new panel does not include Rep.

The United Sates must "respect for the right of human mobility", she said before adding, "because it is a right". She said Pelosi asked her to serve on the committee, but she declined because it focuses on investigations.
The 14-page resolution envisions a shift to 100% renewable and zero-emission energy sources, and calls for the creation of millions of new high-wage jobs to help wipe out poverty.
The resolution paints a grim view of present-day America, saying it is "experiencing several related crises" including declining life expectancy, economic stagnation, erosion of worker bargaining power, increasing income inequality and the exacerbation of "systemic racial, regional, social, environmental and economic injustices".
Most of the Democratic presidential candidates, including Senators Kirsten Gillibrand of New York; Kamala Harris of California; Elizabeth Warren of MA; and Cory Booker of New Jersey have also broadly endorsed the idea behind the Green New Deal.
