Washington, D.C. — In response to President Biden’s Joint Address to Congress tonight, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) released the following statement from LCV President Gene Karpinski:

“Tonight, on the eve of the strongest first 100 days for climate and environmental justice we’ve ever seen from any presidential administration, President Biden made clear once again that he is centering communities and justice in our recovery, from the workers who built this country to the people who have been left out of economic opportunity and disproportionately impacted by the nation’s four interconnected crises. The stakes of the climate crisis couldn’t be higher, and in order to help cut carbon pollution, address environmental and economic injustice, and continue on this path of economic recovery, we must invest in infrastructure that creates millions of good-paying union jobs — including clean energy jobs — across the country. We are all in to continue working with the administration and Congress to pass the American Jobs Plan, strengthen our democracy by passing the For The People Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act, confront racial injustice, and transition to a just and equitable clean energy future that works for all communities.”
