TELL YOUR LEGISLATORS TO SUPPORT THE GREEN NEW DEAL

The Green New Deal is a 10-year plan to mobilize every aspect of American society to 100% clean and renewable energy by 2030, a guaranteed living-wage job for anyone who needs one, and a just transition for both workers and frontline communities.

 

TELL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE AND SENATOR TO CO-SPONSER H.R.5185/S.2876 - GREEN NEW DEAL FOR PUBLIC HOUSING ACT

The Green New Deal for Public Housing Act would commit up to $180 billion over 10 years to upgrading 1.2 million federally administered homes. This act will protect those who are in frontline communities and those who will be affected by the climate crisis the most. One third of the US carbon emissions are created by buildings. This bill would help de-carbonize the US is public housing.

 

TELL SENATOR BARRETT AND FRIEDMAN TO SUPPORT H.2810

We need to create a strong green infrastructure. This bill aims to promote green infrastructure and carbon pricing.

 

TELL SENATOR BARRETT, FRIEDMAN AND REPRESENTATIVE CICCOLO TO SUPPORT S.464 H.4264 S.453 AN ACT RELATIVE TO ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE IN THE COMMONWEALTH

It is time we recognize climate change is a social justice issue. This bill helps support communities that are affected by climate change.
PROTECT COMMUNITIES FROM MORE POLLUTION The Act expands the requirements for state government environmental review to include public health impacts and long-term harms when deciding whether to prohibit polluting projects.
INCREASE ACCESS TO GOVERNMENT AND INFORMATION The Act ensures that polluters pay for translation of written information into languages spoken by nearby residents and interpretation at public meetings so that everyone can learn about a project and share their opinion with decision makers. The Act also requires public meetings to be held in convenient locations at times when people are able to attend.
INCREASE ACCESS TO HEALTHY RESOURCES The Act expands access to parks, open space, clean rivers, gardens, and playgrounds particularly for neighborhoods that do not have these benefits. It will also provide funds and other resources to help neighborhoods that have not had many resources.

 

TELL SENATOR BARRETT TO SUPPORT H.2836/S.1958

The 100% Renewable Energy Act (filed by Representative Marjorie Decker, Representative Sean Garballey, and Senator Jamie Eldridge) will quicken the growth of clean energy and will create clear, requirements to ensure we stay on track to achieve 100 percent renewable energy, while at the same time making sure that the displaced workers, low income and communities of color that have been most impacted by fossil fuel pollution have a seat at the table.
