Sep 20, 2023

Washington, D.C.— In response to President Biden’s announcement that he will take executive action to create an American Climate Corps, LCV issued the following statement from Vice President of Government Affairs Sara Chieffo:

“We are thrilled to see President Biden using his executive power to deliver on his commitment to establish the American Climate Corps, which will kick off with training tens of thousands of young people for high-quality jobs tackling the climate crisis. This program is a culmination of a years-long effort by activists and organizers to create a youth-led climate jobs corps and will focus on equity and environmental justice – prioritizing communities traditionally left behind. With this program, President Biden is once again proving that combating the climate crisis and creating good jobs go hand in hand.”
