Rest in Power, Justice Ginsburg
“It is with deep and profound sadness that we mourn the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg earlier this month. A fierce advocate for women’s rights and civil rights, Justice Ginsburg’s vision for America transcended race, age, gender, and economic lines.
She was a beloved champion of justice for all. Justice Ginsburg’s wisdom, determination, and dedication to equal rights embodied the League’s belief in the power of women to create a more perfect democracy.” LWVUS

Act to REMOVE BIOMASS from climate legislation in Massachusetts
Write to the joint committee that is reconciling the Senate and House climate bills, H.4912 and S.2500, passed earlier in 2020, with this message. Biomass energy must be removed from the list of “non-carbon emitting fuels.” The fact is biomass is a huge emitter of carbon dioxide and would send us backwards on our path toward zero carbon emissions by 2050.
