Washington, DC — Today, Business Forward Foundation and a growing list of partners joined together in a community-wide effort to help launch the Coalition for Clean Energy and Healthy Communities. Business Forward Foundation President Jim Doyle released the following statement:
“Business Forward joins the coalition in support of key legislative priorities for creating good, green jobs, incentivizing clean energy projects, and directing funds toward a comprehensive, modern infrastructure. Providing relief to Americans in need should be the first priority – but Congress must build a sustainable and forward-thinking support system for the most-affected communities.
“Thank you to the Coalition for Clean Energy and Healthy Communities for organizing this community-wide effort intended to meet the needs of frontline workers and families most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
