Washington, D.C. — The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) and Climate Power launched new digital ads thanking 22 House members for voting to advance the Build Back Better Budget Resolution — a critical step in delivering transformative investments through the reconciliation process. These ads are the latest addition to LCV and Climate Power’s more than $14 million August recess paid media campaign. The ads thank members for prioritizing their constituents — who overwhelmingly support investments to tackle climate change, create good jobs and grow the economy, and address longstanding environmental injustices.

“We commend these Members of Congress for putting the health and well being of our communities first in passing the Budget Resolution and setting the stage for the Build Back Better Act,” said Pete Maysmith, LCV SVP of Campaigns. “Now the work to deliver on the climate action the majority of voters are demanding begins — and we will be working with these and other allies in Congress to deliver the popular and necessary investments in the Build Back Better Act that cut carbon pollution by at least half by 2030 and put our nation on the path to 100% carbon-free energy powering our electricity grid and new cars, buses, and buildings by 2035 while delivering at least 40% of investment benefits to communities of color and low-income communities that have borne the brunt of fossil fuel pollution.”
“Voters in districts across the country strongly support the Build Back Better Act because they understand the climate crisis is here, is real, and demands immediate action,” said Climate Power executive director Lori Lodes. “We are grateful for the leadership of these climate champions and look forward to working with them to get a bill to the president’s desk that creates millions of clean energy jobs, slashes pollution, and moves us toward a clean energy future.”
New digital thank you ads are up in the following districts:
The thank you ads are the latest effort in LCV and Climate Power’s historic summer of climate advocacy. In August so far, LCV and Climate Power have already invested $14 million in national, state, and district level paid media campaigns; LCV organizers have knocked over 120,000 doors, distributed almost 10,000 ‘Climate Action Now’ yard signs, and garnered support from over 4,500 businesses across the country; and LCV and Climate Power have held over 35 events with key Members of Congress, Biden administration officials, state and local elected officials, labor unions, environmental justice partners, and more.
