Join us Wednesday, October 20 at 6:00pm for a meeting as part of PA IPL‘s ongoing partnership with Jewish Earth Alliance (JEA).
Topic: Inside the Build Back Better Act
In this meeting we will be discussing what is currently included in the Build Back Better Act, what has been or might be eliminated, and most importantly what can concerned citizens do.
Our main speaker will be Emily Wirzba, Manager of Government Relations at the Environmental Defense Action Fund. She has the inside story. Emily will talk for about 10 minutes and answer questions. We will discuss what citizens can and must do to get climate solutions passed.
You can register here for this event.
We hope to see you then, and in the meantime keep pressuring Senator Casey and your US Congressperson to support all of the climate solutions in the Build Back Better Bill. If you need help on how to call or email them and what to say, please contact Phyllis for assistance.
Register now and receive an email providing the Zoom link for the meeting.
Note: We had to shift the meeting time to 6:00pm to accommodate our excellent speaker.

An inspirational spiritual speaker.
Jewish Earth Alliance and PA Interfaith Power & Light are co-sponsoring this informational and motivational meeting on Wednesday, September 1 at 7:30pm.
The US still gets 60% of its electricity from fossil fuels. Electrical generation is a major source of carbon emissions, second only to transportation. To avert the worst effects of climate change we need to use 100% clean renewable energy such as from solar or wind. A federal Clean Energy Standards (CES) would mandate progress toward the use of renewables for the entire country, which would be a tremendous step toward eliminating the greenhouse gas emissions causing climate change.
Democrats are aiming to pass a budget under the rules of reconciliation, offering another opportunity to remediate the climate crisis. Their proposed $3.5 trillion budget includes CES, and other climate solutions such as electric car incentives and energy efficient buildings. Members of Congress need to hear our call for comprehensive CES that accelerates the transition to renewable energy, with justice for communities harmed by fossil fuel.
