Washington, DC—In solidarity with the Native Nations March on Washington today, League of Conservation Voters President Gene Karpinski issued the following statement:
“As our nation’s indigenous communities and their supporters converge on Washington, LCV stands as allies in the fight for justice. This gathering transcends people, borders and lands to calls on the Trump administration, and those in positions of power, to respect the rights of our indigenous brothers and sisters to protect all they hold sacred from big polluters and invasive energy projects which put access to clean air, water and land in jeopardy.
We thank the indigenous communities for fighting for Mother Earth.”
The fight for climate, justice and a clean energy economy continues April 29 at the Peoples Climate March in Washington, DC. For March details, visit the event page, here. LCV joined the Peoples Climate Movement as an official sponsor in November 2016.
