Green New Deal: Young Activist to Dianne Feinstein: "We're the ones affected!"

"Feinstein dismissed the children—some as young as 7 years old—asking her to take bold action on climate change."

- “We’re the ones affected.” Those are the words of youth climate activists who confronted California Senator Dianne Feinstein last week in San Francisco, demanding she sign on to the Green New Deal. In a video of the interaction that has since been seen across the country, Feinstein dismissed the children—some as young as 7 years old—asking her to take bold action on climate change. We speak with the youth climate activists who confronted the senator: 16-year-old Isha Clarke, 12-year-old Rio and his 10-year-old sister Magdalena.
