There is an entire generation that will do whatever it takes to stop the climate crisis and improve our communities. We understand that the task that lies before us is historic: There are millions of buildings that need to be retrofitted, homes to be rewired, miles of shoreline to be prepared for rising waters, and forests and parks to be conserved.
We are ready to take on the responsibility. It’s time for the federal government to put us to work solving the climate crisis and rebuilding our economy.
President Biden has an opportunity to harness the energy of our generation and meet his administration’s priorities by putting a generation of young people on pathways to well-paying union jobs. He has the opportunity to take action at the scale of the crisis and young people are ready to get to work serving their communities.
