WASHINGTON, D.C.—People’s Action today released the following statement by Climate Justice Campaign Director Kaniela Ing in response to President Biden’s surrender to Senate Republicans on his infrastructure bill:

“President Biden’s bill was already three times too small before this attempt to placate Republicans and their billionaire backers. Republicans don’t want this administration to succeed, and if the president tries to soothe them by showing his belly, he will damage the communities who are hurting the most. Instead of trying to please people like Mitch McConnell who says they are ‘100% focused’ on stopping him, he should keep his commitments to climate, jobs, and justice that earned him the support of millions of workers, families, caregivers, and climate refugees.”

People’s Action is a national network of 40 state and local grassroots, power-building organizations in 30 states, united in fighting for justice. We operate the largest progressive rural organizing project in the country. People’s Action and its member organizations coordinated one of the biggest distributed organizing programs in rural areas this past election season.
