As our country faces the intersecting crises of COVID-19, economic inequality, racial and environmental injustice, and climate change, we need bold and equitable solutions that match the scope of these challenges. President Biden’s American Jobs Plan is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to lay the foundation for a more just and sustainable future by combating the climate crisis and addressing environmental injustice. Join us in thanking President Biden for providing the leadership we desperately needed.
The plan moves us towards zero-emissions and 100% clean energy by making historic investments in a clean and modern power grid, electric vehicle infrastructure, healthy ports, and energy efficient homes and buildings. It addresses the toxic legacy of fossil fuels and environmental racism by cleaning up pollution in the most impacted communities. It acknowledges all communities have a right to clean water and provides sorely needed funding for water infrastructure, including for the removal of every lead water pipe in the country. The plan also holds polluters accountable by eliminating billions of dollars in fossil fuel industry subsidies and restoring payments to cover cleanup of toxic sites. And it jumpstarts our economy by creating new jobs in clean energy, natural climate solutions, and pollution clean-up
In this critical year for climate action, President Biden is restoring U.S. climate leadership and putting us on a path to meet our Paris Agreement goals. Please join us in thanking President Biden for investing in jobs, justice, and sustainability.
