Detroit, MI – Today, President Biden will speak at the grand opening of GM’s Factory Zero, which is reopening as a new facility for electric vehicles and trucks. His speech will focus on the first piece of the President’s agenda: major investments in the country’s shipping, transportation, public transit, clean water, and electric vehicle infrastructure. Alongside his visit, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) will run a digital ad campaign in Detroit and surrounding communities, as well as a billboard on the Lodge Freeway at Wyoming Avenue, urging the President and Congress to finish the job and pass the Build Back Better Act. This is Congress’ chance to pass bold climate action by investing in clean energy, high-quality union jobs, and environmental justice.
Welcome President Biden, we’re ready to get building.
“When I think climate change I think jobs.”
Michigan is ready to get to work, and we know you are too.
Thanks for fighting to pass the Build Back Better Act!
