CLCV STATEMENT ON THE PROTECTING AMERICA’S WILDERNESS & PUBLIC LANDS ACT PASSING THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

Oakland, CA - The California League of Conservation Voters (CLCV) released the following statement regarding landmark conservation legislation passing the House of Representatives.

Statement from Mary Creasman, Chief Executive Officer, CLCV:

“This bill will protect more than a million acres of public lands and well over 500 miles of rivers in California, help address climate change, and make the outdoors more accessible to all. That's a win for all of us and an important investment in climate action, especially as we work to meet the Biden administration's goal of protecting 30% of our lands and waters by 2030. We are grateful for the leadership of our Representatives in the House and we are eager for this effort to move forward in the Senate.”

We believe that radical change is necessary and only by transforming our political system will we create the opportunity to take bold action on climate change. We elect and cultivate environmental champions, turn election victories into policy wins, hold our lawmakers accountable, and build political power for change. We inspire hope and action and fight for equity and justice for all Californians. We are in the business of changing what’s possible.
