Donald McEachin Installed as Vice-Chair of the Sustainale Energy and Environment Coalition

WASHINGTON — Congressman A. Donald McEachin (VA-04) issued this statement following his installation as a Vice-Chair of the Sustainable Energy and Environment Coalition (SEEC):

“Scientific reports, record breaking natural disasters, and my constituents – especially our courageous young people – have made it crystal-clear: the time to act on climate is now. As members of SEEC’s leadership team, we will take bold steps together to address our climate crisis. We will encourage our national transition to a clean energy economy; promote the creation of well-paying green jobs; and advocate for strong environmental protections, all while fighting to address long-standing environmental injustices. I am confident that in the new Democratic Majority, SEEC members will help lead our colleagues and our country toward a more sustainable future. I am excited and honored to be part of the leadership that will help make that happen.”
