We have a once in a generation opportunity to invest in our future — if Congress is willing to make the bold decisions needed to meet the moment.
The Build Back Better Act currently being crafted and debated is our last, best chance to do our part to avert the worst impacts of the climate crisis. Congress needs to hear from you. Our Senators and Representatives need to know that you expect them to make the most important and impactful investments in the final bill. We need bold climate and infrastructure investments that will create good, family-sustaining jobs to get the economy back on track, cut the carbon pollution that contributes to the climate crisis, and prioritize environmental justice in underserved communities.
Send a message to your Representative in the House and your Senators today.
We’re facing a code red on climate change and we have to act now. The Build Back Better Act must include the Clean Electricity Performance Program to power our electrical grid with clean and renewable sources of energy. It needs to clean up the vehicles that move goods across the country and get us from place to place while improving public transit, rail, bike and pedestrian travel — our transportation system is the largest source of climate pollution. The final bill also needs to invest in removing ALL lead service lines to protect our drinking water. It needs to end the tax breaks and giveaways to fossil fuel companies that cost taxpayers billions of dollars. And we need to make sure these investments benefit disadvantaged communities and people of color, who have for too long been harmed by a legacy of environmental racism and chronic disinvestment.
Take action today and let your Representative in the House and your Senators know that we need to take this historic opportunity and invest in a safe and livable future.
For Clean Water,
National Special Projects Manager
