“President Biden’s plan to cut climate pollution from dirty power plants is a strong start, but we need him to enact the strongest possible version of these climate pollution standards. I’m joining a broad coalition of environmental justice leaders from around the U.S. to call on the EPA to not back down. People of Color, especially African Americans are at higher risk of climate-related health impacts. Our climate and health can’t wait.”
