Being that climate change has emerged as one of the main issues voters care about it would be a smart move for the DNC to take these activists seriously.

Hundreds of youth activists held a sit-in at the DNC headquarters yesterday demanding a climate change presidential debate be a top priority.

This protest occurs right before the first Democratic primary debate is about to take place later today. The DNC has scheduled a dozen primary debates so far overall, but DNC chair Tom Perez announced there will not be a debate dedicated to the urgency and seriousness of the current climate crisis. 

“People everywhere are hurting from pollution and climate disasters, yet our political and media establishment routinely ignores these crises,” Destiney Lee, a 22-year-old Sunrise Movement activist said at the sit-in. 

Being that climate change has emerged as one of the main issues voters care about, even ahead of the 2020 election, it would be a smart move for the DNC to take these activists seriously.
