In case you missed it, I wanted to let you know that our Climate Town Hall with Rep. Bonamici is now uploaded on YouTube and ready to watch and share! All of us here at OLCV left Monday’s Town Hall feeling inspired–Rep. Bonamici is truly dedicated to protecting our oceans, transitioning to clean energy, and addressing climate change, and she made it clear that she’ll keep fighting for a strong Build Back Better Act.
“Where we are right now, with drought, extreme weather events, the recent IPCC report–this is code red,” Rep. Bonamici said at the Town Hall. “We’re going to get this done and do as much as we can.”
This is a critical time to take action, because the Build Back Better Act is about to go to a vote, and fossil fuel interests have been hard at work trying to weaken it. We can’t let that happen! This is a once in a generation opportunity that would invest in clean energy, justice, and jobs, and direct 40% of the benefits to the communities most impacted by climate change. If we don’t act on climate now, we might not get another chance.
So what can you do to help? Take action using our online tool: send an email to thank Senators Wyden and Merkley and Rep. Bonamici for their hard work on the Build Back Better Act, and encourage them to keep fighting.
We’re closer than ever to passing the bold climate action plan that our country needs. Let’s help get it over the finish line! Please take action today to support the Build Back Better Act.
