Location:14th Street between Madison Dr. and Jefferson Dr.•National Mall, Washington, DC 20016
As West Virginians, we support President Joe Biden’s “American Jobs Plan”. Are you excited about the thousands of jobs this plan would create repairing our infrastructure, improving public health, and building a clean-energy economy?
If so, please join 100 fellow West Virginians on July 13th in Washington, DC. We’ll gather outdoors near the Capitol lawn in support of President Joe Biden’s American Jobs Plan and its 100% clean electricity by 2035 provision.
The American Jobs Plan includes extending the 48C Manufacturing Tax Credit which supports rural manufacturing and clean energy. This proven capital access program includes a special $4 billion carve-out for companies willing to set up operations in communities where coal mines or coal power plants have closed. In addition, the plan allocates $16 billion dollars to cap abandoned oil wells that continue to leak methane into the air and contaminate waterways.
The time to act is now. On July 13th we will gather at the US Capitol to show our support for 100% clean electricity and the American Jobs Plan.
Co-sponsors of this event include West Virginia New Jobs Coalition, West Virginia Working Families Party, and CCAN Action Fund.
