SEEC Members Call for Climate Justice, Jobs, Action

April 28, 2017
Press Release

The last several years had seen tremendous progress in the fight against climate change culminating in the ratification of the Paris Climate Agreement in November 2016. Unfortunately, the Trump Administration has spent its first 100 days attacking many of the hard-won protections for our climate, health, and communities, including attempting to eviscerate the EPA’s budget, as well as roll back the Clean Power Plan.

On April 27th Members of the House Sustainable Energy and Environment Coalition (SEEC) and other environmental leaders rallied Peoples Climate Marchers in front of the Capitol Building as they called for climate justice, jobs and a clean energy economy.

The Peoples Climate March is scheduled for Saturday, April 29th in Washington, D.C. which is also Donald Trump’s 100th day in office. 

Participants Included: Congressman Gerry Connolly, Congressman Paul D. Tonko, Congresswoman Chellie Pingree, Congressman Jared Polis, Congressman Alan Lowenthal, Congressman Matt Cartwright, Congressman Jared Huffman, Congressman Don Beyer, Congressman Donald McEachin, Congresswoman Susan Davis, Congresswoman Annie Kuster, Congressman Bobby Scott, Congressman Derek Kilmer, Congressman Peter Welch, Congressman John K. Delaney, Congressman Jim Langevin, Congressman Rick Nolan, Kim Glas, Executive Director BlueGreen Alliance, José Bravo, Executive Director Just Transition Alliance, Angela Adrar Executive Director, Climate Justice Alliance, Mustafa Ali, Senior Vice President of Climate, Environmental Justice & Community.
