1,000 calls in 48 hours paid off! Equity in ACES!

Authors: Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins We just received word that the final House version of the American Clean Energy and Security Act (ACES) includes the equity provisions we've been fighting so hard for! We now have a small window of opportunity to help pass ACES. The House of Representatives will vote today, and many members are still on the fence. The critical equity improvements to the bill simply would not have happened without your support. In the past 48 hours alone, Green For All supporters have made close to 1000 phone calls to their Representatives. Thank you for speaking up for opportunity and investment in our communities! Now, the bill provides opportunity for low-income communities and communities of color. Now, there are protections in the bill that ensure that working families don't bear the cost for big polluters. Now, there is significant funding for green job training programs that build pathways out of poverty. And now, these good jobs will be accessible to low-income and local workers. Now, we can support the American Clean Energy and Security Act as truly green for all. "Vote yes on the American Clean Energy and Security Act." NOTE: Congress is being flooded with calls. Please keep trying if you don't get through the first time. You all have fought hard to get us this far, help us get across the finish line today. Yesterday, President Obama called on the House of Representatives to pass ACES, saying "I can't stress enough the importance of this vote. I know this is going to be a close vote. But my call to those members of Congress who are still on the fence, as well as to the American people, is this… now is the time to finally act." Let's act today. And let's make history.
