Leaders from Black, Brown, Indigenous, and low-wealth communities will speak on how federal recovery legislation can rebuild our economy and fight climate change by intentionally investing in the communities most impacted by climate change and fossil fuel pollution. Removing the barriers to clean air, water, and the outdoors—many of which are rooted in purposefully discriminatory federal policies—is a crucial and necessary step in charting an equitable path to recovery. From investment in green jobs, to restoring flood-mitigating wetlands, to better enforcement of federal pollution safeguards, our leaders should address the historic disinvestment in these communities on the frontlines of the ongoing public health and climate crises.
