My thoughts are with the UNC Charlotte community during this painful and difficult moment. We must act now to prevent gun violence by following the lead of the young people marching, the moms demanding action and advocates across the country who refuse to live in fear any longer.
"This policy was put together as the candidate has been touring the country. It's informed by the people he meets and by the questions he gets. Whether it's in Iowa, Nevada, or California, you can see that O'Rourke has been absorbing this information."
MSNBC on our climate plan:
“The proposal lays out a four-pronged approach: 1) executive action, 2) mobilizing $5 trillion to invest in a clean energy transition, 3) guaranteeing net-zero emissions by 2050, and 4) preparing vulnerable communities for the impacts of climate change.”

Just a few of the things @BetoORourke addressed in his opening remarks at the #WorkersForum:
It’s going to take all of us to be successful, not just against Donald Trump in November of 2020, but for this country in January of 2021 and beyond. Thank you, @IndivisibleTeam for the opportunity to sign on.
Ending our first visit to California with an enthusiastic and informative town hall in San Diego. Thanks to everyone who joined us as we traveled across the state and visited so many incredible communities. See you again soon. – at Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation
Our ability to campaign this way — grassroots, without PACs, by and for people in every state and community — can bring us together not just to defeat Trump but to ensure we have the full power of people, of a movement, to accomplish this country’s priorities. – at Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation

“Beto O’Rourke made a stop in Modesto to discuss ideas for combating climate change with a panel at Modesto Junior College. That was hours after the Democratic presidential candidate announced a $5 trillion proposal at Yosemite National Park.”
Thanks to everyone who joined us today in Yosemite National Park and across the Central Valley to not only share our plan to fight climate change but to commit to putting it into action for our kids, communities, country, and this planet.
The greatest threat we face is climate change. But by showing up to meet with, listen to, and learn from thousands of Americans on the ground in communities across this country, we've put together a bold, ambitious, historic plan to meet this challenge with everything we've got.
“Beto O'Rourke on Monday unveiled an ambitious plan to combat climate change that spurs $5 trillion for the cause and aims to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. O'Rourke would also boost resources to help communities already facing extreme weather”
