WASHINGTON, DC — The Biden/Harris victory means our families have a true partner when it comes to our safety—whether from climate chaos, COVID, or a collapsing economy.
A statement from Dominique Browning, Co-Founder and Associate Vice President of Moms Clean Air Force, follows:
“On behalf of our more than 1 million members, we congratulate President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their historic win, with a popular vote approaching 75 million. By electing Biden and Harris, Americans voted for the strongest climate plan in presidential history.
“From Day One, we will be looking for bold action from the White House to keep our families safe from climate change as well as the COVID pandemic, racial injustice, and economic uncertainty. Our moms are eager to see the incoming administration restore science-based rulemaking and our global leadership on climate. We look forward to working with a president who values people’s health and understands that the way to protect health and well-being is to pay attention to what doctors and scientists advise. We also expect enormous strides in reducing climate change and air pollution, while righting the wrongs of environmental injustice.
“After four years of defending our children’s health from an unprecedented series of clean air rollbacks, we are overjoyed to turn our attention to building a secure and just future for our families. Our members are ready to broaden support for clean air and a stable climate—and we will continue to translate that support into real action, as we have since 2010. President-elect Joe Biden and Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris understand that cleaning up pollution can help protect our health, grow good jobs, and address racial injustice. Let’s get to work!”
