It was an honor to be a panelist at the Funding A Future For All Climate Roundtable this past Saturday. I spoke alongside Rep. Hillary Scholten about how federal funds can be utilized to tackle climate change, fight environmental injustice, and create equity in Grand Rapids. We have an opportunity to be leaders in sustainability, developing new, clean energy technology, and protecting our precious natural resources -- and I’m very proud to live in and represent a community where this is a shared priority.

♻️ Michigan League of Conservation Voters
💧 Community Collaboration on Climate Change (C4)

🌳 GR Climate Coalition

♻️ Sierra Club Michigan Chapter
💧 Climate Witness Project
