Dear Alice,

Clean energy legislation will very likely be voted on NEXT WEEK. 

 

Watch our new ad and help us raise $50,000 to keep it on the air for the final critical days.

This is it. Next week, the House will very likely vote on landmark clean energy legislation.

And Big Oil is doing everything they can to defeat it.

I'm going to tell it to you straight - we could lose this vote if we don't act now.

That's why we put together an ad showing how clean energy can rebuild our economy, increase national security, and protect the planet – but we need to raise $50,000 RIGHT NOW to run this ad through the vote next week. 

Make an emergency donation of $50 or more today.

Thanks to the generous support of our members, we were able to win 12 of the critical 16 swing votes on this bill in the House Energy and Commerce Committee last month. But with the full House vote only days away, we need your help more than ever!

You and I have worked for years for the chance to pass legislation like this.  But Big Oil is mobilizing as never before. In just the first 4 months of this year they've spent almost $80 million trying to defeat clean energy legislation, pulling out all the stops to kill it - from high-paid lobbyists, to misleading ads, to threats to turn off the campaign funding spigots.

We're doing all we can to defeat them – meeting with key members of Congress, organizing tens of thousands of community members, phone-banking in swing districts, and running radio and TV ads like this one.

But with the House floor vote expected within days, we need the resources to do even more. 

Please help us keep this ad on the air and continue our essential grassroots campaign – make an emergency donation of $50 or more TODAY.

Alice, I know it from thirty years of fighting - our moment is here. This vote is our best opportunity strengthen and pass clean energy legislation this year - but Big Oil and Dirty Coal are fighting back – hard.  That's why we need your help today.

Thank you for everything you do for LCV and the environment.
