In 2022, LNS advised the Green New Deal Network (GNDN) on how to strengthen the pro-labor, climate justice provisions in federal policy proposals. Although Build Back Better (BBB) and the Protect the Right to Organize Act could not get past the Big Coal/Big Oil members in Congress, the coalition and Biden Administration passed the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), which provides unprecedented federal funding for new investments in green energy infrastructure. Now our job is to help state and local allies understand and access these new resources to implement just transition policies and programs, spotlight success stories, AND expose green-washing projects that would harm workers and vulnerable communities, and drastically delay progress in curtailing carbon-emissions.
