Billie Eilish, Finneas, Maroon 5, Brittany Howard & More Push Congress to Act on Climate Change Bill
On Wednesday, the stars will enable their millions of fans to take action by launching a massive social media campaign by posting images of a large red exclamation point, alternating with scenes of extreme weather conditions, while using the hashtags #CodeRedClimate and #CodeRedCongress. The campaign will include a link to a page where fans can email their local representatives and push support for the largest climate protection bill in American history. During the week of Sept. 27, Congress will vote on the bill that outlines how to get the country to 80% pollution-free electricity by 2030; provide tax incentives for solar, wind, energy-efficiency, electric cars, charging stations, and more; and cut subsidies for fossil fuels.
The “Build Back Better” bill also plans to drive major investment into communities disproportionately hit by environmental injustice.
