Hip Hop Caucus To LA Senator "Keep Your Hands Off The Clean Air Act"

 





Launch Call-to-Action Initiative to Prevent Senator Mary Landrieu from Supporting a Major Roll-Back of the Clean Air Act at the Behest of Special Interests

WASHINGTON, D.C., - The Hip Hop Caucus (www.hiphopcaucus.org ) today announced its efforts to prevent Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, from supporting a bill that would gut the Clean Air Act.  Senator Mary Landrieu has publicly announced that she is working with Sen. Lisa Murkowski on Special Interest-directed legislation that would block the Environmental Protection Agency's ability to enforce the Clean Air Act for greenhouse gas emissions, which cause Global Warming.  The Hip Hop Caucus will launch a grassroots initiative including calls to Louisiana residents encouraging voters to take action by calling the Senator's office to criticize her anti-Clean Air Act efforts that threaten the climate and to ask her to instead support clean-energy jobs.  Today, the Hip Hop Caucus, in partnership with the Alliance for Climate Protection, and the Clean Energy Works campaign,  launched a Clean Energy Now Bus tour from New Orleans, LA.  The Hip Hop Caucus is a national, non-profit organization that focuses on educating urban communities on social and political issues facing their families and the country.

Rev. Lennox Yearwood, Jr., a Louisiana native, President of the Hip Hop Caucus, and Director of the Gulf Coast Renewal Campaign states, "Senator Mary Landrieu, of our great state of Louisiana, is working to roll back the Clean Air Act.  Our economy is in a dismal state, and on top of that Louisiana is still rebuilding from Katrina.  But Senator Landrieu is working with special interests in Washington to allow for more pollution at our communities' expense.  Instead, communities of color and young people want to see progress towards a clean-energy future, and the job opportunities that we can create now from investment in such a future." 

About the Hip Hop Caucus (www.hiphopcaucus.org
The Hip Hop Caucus organizes young people in urban communities to be active in elections, policymaking, and service projects.  The Hip Hop Caucus is a member of the Black Leadership Forum and the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights.  With nearly 700,000 members around the country, in 2008, the Hip Hop Caucus created the "Respect My Vote!" campaign with recording artists T.I. and Keyshia Cole, and in 2004, Hip Hop Caucus President Rev Yearwood co-created the "Vote or Die!" campaign with P Diddy. The Hip Hop Caucus is a non-partisan, non-profit organization.
