Urge Congress to Pass the Build Back Better Act

Dear [title] [last name],

As your constituent and someone committed to healthy communities, I urge you to pass the Build Back Better Act (HR 5376).

Climate change and dangerous housing conditions are undeniable in communities across the country, and right here in your district. From drought to lead paint, flooding to industrial air pollution, and sewage overflows in our water sources to household mold, solutions are long overdue. 

I applaud Congress for passing the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. This additional $550 billion dollar investment in transportation and roadways, climate change, cybersecurity and broadband access, workforce development, drinking water quality, and legacy pollution cleanup will make significant impacts on the lives of your constituents. 

Any yet, we must not stop there. 

The Build Back Better Act will set our communities down a path of progress and equity. Paid sick leave, universal childcare, investment in clean energy, and remediation of housing hazards like mold or lead-based paint will make a lasting impact on the well-being and health of families.

We also know that the economic, health, and environmental impacts of climate change, pollution, and exposure to toxic chemicals falls disproportionately on communities of color and low-income households. Doing right by these communities is doing justice. 

I join many others in calling on you and your colleagues to pass the Build Back Better Act. The health and future of your district depends on it.
