Congress: Demand that the Biden Admin. Fights for Climate Justice Funding!

184 so far! Let’s get to 250 signers!

President Biden announced his interim Justice40 Initiative in 2021, which will send 40% of federal investment benefits to frontline communities. We're glad to see President Biden engaging on environmental justice. Now we need him to strengthen his guidance before it is finalized. I'm writing to urge you to sign the letter led by U.S. Reps. Maloney, Khanna, Bush, Tlaib; and Sen. Markey calling on the White House to strengthen its Justice40 Initiative by: - Direct funding to communities most vulnerable to historical discrimination, pollution, and climate change. - Ensuring that Justice40 creates good-paying jobs in frontline communities that adhere to strong labor standards and prioritize hiring frontline workers in those communities.  - Ensuring that all federal investments “do no harm” to disadvantaged communities and require agencies to report impact assessments publicly. - Requiring all agencies to implement Justice40 initiatives quickly and comprehensively.  President Biden has the authority to create a Justice40 Initiative that directs funds to frontline communities, creates jobs, centers justice, and gets done quickly, but he needs to hear from Congress! Please do this now; thanks!
