The Political Climate on Climate

By Ben Malley, The Advocacy Fund

While the impacts of climate change play out around us, the US House of Representatives, with its more than 100 climate deniers, remains the most anti-environment House of all time. According to the latest League of Conservation Voters scorecard, House Republicans cast an anti-environment vote more than 90 percent of the time in 2013, voting to weaken the Clean Air Act 20 times and weaken the Clean Water Act 37 times. With very little prospect of this changing in the upcoming election, climate groups continue to face the prospect of a House that is not only unresponsive, but antagonistic to the urgent need to address climate change.

The #TimeIsNow to Fix Our Broken Immigration System

The summer of 2013 was a critical turning point for the immigration rights movement, led by the nation’s largest immigration reform collaborative – Alliance for Citizenship (A4C), a project of The Advocacy Fund. Momentum continues to be on their side as they fight for legalization with a path to citizenship for our nation’s 11 million aspiring citizens. There were moments of elation in late June when the Senate passed historic immigration reform legislation by a 2 to 1 vote, followed by the intense ground war in key congressional districts across the country to tee up a vote in the House this fall. The Alliance for Citizenship and its partners are determined to pass immigration reform this year—and once and for all, put an end to a broken system that tears apart families through heartless deportations and establishes a roadmap for immigrants to come out from the shadows and gives them access to full citizenship.
