Earth Day with SEIU

April 22, 2022

On April 9, nearly 400 SEIU members gathered for the 2022 Climate, Jobs and Justice Summit to learn about the increasingly urgent need to reverse the climate changes that are disproportionately affecting low income communities of color.

Although we have the power to make changes in our personal lives to help protect the planet, we all know that larger-scale change will depend on those we elect to our state and federal legislators. EVP Gerry Hudson led a panel on what we need to do to get climate champions into elected offices across the country. "We know that it is imperative that we act now. We must go out in this election cycle and put in office people who actually represent our interests on jobs, our interests on climate, our interest on racial justice...and we need to be in the streets and at rallies-- then we can put our country on the road to a clean energy economy that works for all," said Hudson. Next, Leah Donahey of the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) helped us understand the priorities for environmental groups at the national level, while SEIU’s Desmond Serrett showed us the path to victory leading to this November.
