Wednesday Webinar Session 3: The Post-Virus Economic Recovery Should Be a Green One
We were honored to have U.S. Senator Ed Markey join us for our special Earth Day Edition.
The webinar served as a great reminder that we are fortunate to have a strong delegation representing the people of Massachusetts in Washington. Senator Markey is dedicated to pushing for a economic recovery that fosters renewable energy, promotes job training for green industries, and ameliorates the disproportionate burdens on low income communities and communities of color. He asserted that COVID-19 demonstrates what happens when science is ignored; we already know what’s coming our way with climate change, and its incumbent on us to do something about it.
In closing, he called on us all to work “to lift the gaze of our country to the constellation of possibilities.”
