When former Rep Joe Kennedy decided to launch a primary challenge against Senator Ed Markey, pundits began writing Markey’s political obituary. He was trailing badly in polls and a lot of his own constituents had never heard of him. But Markey is the co-author of the Green New Deal resolution, and the GND movement mobilized to his defense. Along the way the 74-year-old Senator acquired a large fanbase of Very Online Teenagers, and Markey’s victory helped convince Democrats that climate action is a winning issue.

GenGND looks at the story of Ed Markey with Senator Markey himself, Evan Weber and Alex O’Keefe of Sunrise Movement, and Shanaz Uddin of Students 4 Markey.
