Dr. Jill Stein, Green Party Presidential candidate, will launch her campaign’s national student organization Young Greens Rising with a livestreamed broadcast on Tuesday, September 8th.

“40 million Millennials saddled with student debt acting together can decide the outcome of the 2016 presidential election,” said Dr. Stein. “Abolishing student debt and making college free are part of a broader ‘Power to the People Plan’ that I am calling for. This plan creates deep system change, moving from the greed and exploitation of corporate capitalism to a human-centered economy that puts people, planet and peace over profit.”

“Across the country, young people are rapidly losing trust in the establishment political parties that have abandoned our generation,” said Assistant Campaign Manager Dave Schwab. “Young Greens Rising is about empowering young Americans to build a political movement with real solutions to the problems we face, including an end to student debt, an emergency mobilization to halt climate change, and guaranteed jobs for all who need work as we transition to a sustainable economy.”

The Young Greens Rising livestream, to be held Tuesday September 8th at 8pm Eastern time, will feature remarks from Jill Stein and campaign organizers, as well as a Q&A session with Dr. Stein.
