Climate Action Organizer in VA: ‘This is What the Inflation Reduction Act Means to Me’
Feb 16, 2023
This week, LCV joined the cast of Hamilton and members of The Big Send coalition to launch a week-long letter writing challenge with Vote Forward. On Monday night, we kicked off the week with a virtual event featuring performances from the Hamilton songbook, trivia, and lively discussion about the importance of voting!
The goal for the week: writing 1 million letters to prospective voters as part of the coalition’s overarching goal of 10 million letters. That means 10 million letters to 10 million voters.
Besides the incredible performances and the inspirational words from Lin-Manuel Miranda, our favorite part was an appearance from LCV’s very own SVP of Government Affairs, Tiernan Sittenfeld, discussing our mission at LCV and why participating in our democracy is critical to protecting the health of our environment and our communities.
Tiernan said, “we believe that the 2020 election is our last best chance to elect leaders who will stop the worst impacts of the climate crisis. LCV and our 2 million members are all in to fight for climate and environmental justice in this election cycle and we are so excited to partner with Vote Forward again this year.”

As election day approaches, don’t throw away your shot… VOTE!
