In poll after poll, President Biden’s plan to tackle the climate crisis, invest in green infrastructure and technology, and create millions of new jobs is supported by overwhelming margins. This is the most ambitious climate plan proposed by any American president ever, and it’s clear that the country is hungry for it. We are talking about millions of new jobs, billions invested in a clean energy economy, and concrete steps to break down systemic inequalities and address the harms that the environmental justice movement has been fighting for years.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about how municipal officials would use investments from the Build Back Better Act and ask them questions about what this bill could mean for your community.
