We must ACT Now for healthier communities!
The COVID-19 pandemic and events of the past year show us that our nation is facing unprecedented crises that continue to threaten our health, environment, and our economy. President Biden made it clear that he’s making science the backbone of federal agencies to protect public health and help our communities to truly Build Back Better.
The climate crisis has a direct connection to our health and addressing climate change will improve public health by limiting pollution, improving air quality, and reducing the threat of extreme weather. In March, the president unveiled a bold infrastructure package to help solve these connected challenges -- health, climate, justice, and jobs -- by investing in clean energy, transportation, infrastructure, and new and innovative technologies. The plan would also ensure that at least 40% of the benefits of all these investments go to those communities that have traditionally been overburdened by pollution, while putting millions of people back to work. Under President Biden's leadership, we have the ability to address the climate crisis by cleaning up the dangerous air pollution that harms environmental justice communities.
While there's been lots of discussion on Capitol Hill, we have yet to see action on anything close to the investments we need. It is urgent that Congress pass a bill that makes the big, bold, and ambitious investments needed to tackle the climate crisis, achieve true environmental justice, and accelerate the transition to clean energy. To meet this moment, to heed the science, and to make good on President Biden’s promises, Congress must act now to deliver on climate, justice, and jobs.
Why is this important?
SIGN HERE to demand that the president, his Cabinet, Speaker Pelosi, Majority Leader Schumer, and every member of Congress speak out and #ACTNow to invest and rebuild for a healthier community for all.
