WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Biden Administration takes office at a time when our country faces some of its hardest challenges. The pandemic, the economic crisis, generations-long racial injustices, and the worsening effects of climate change will require transformative and bipartisan action like never before.
“The headlines over the last year have made it clear how great our challenges are — the pandemic, a reckoning with racial justice, historic unemployment, and escalating climate impacts from megafires to record hurricanes. President Joe Biden’s inauguration provides a moment for optimism and an opportunity to come together around addressing these challenges,” said Collin O’Mara, CEO and president of the National Wildlife Federation. “The Biden administration has hit the ground running by nominating a climate-focused cabinet, rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement, and committing to uniting the country and addressing generations-old racial and economic injustices. We look forward to working with the new administration to make climate and economic recovery a mission that brings together all Americans.”
In 2021, the National Wildlife Federation will work with the new administration and Congress on a multi-trillion dollar Build Back Better Infrastructure plan that will address the biodiversity and climate crisis, including deploying a 21st Century Civilian Conservation Corps, ensuring historic support for clean energy, natural infrastructure, and clean manufacturing, and passing the Recovering America’s Wildlife Act — all while putting millions of Americans back to work and advancing environmental justice.
