From Billy Ilish to Hugh Jackman, more than 600 artists have written to showbiz leaders that Congress will take bold action against climate change and pass President Biden’s Build Better Back Agenda. Camilla Cabello started the letter writing campaign.
The artists have joined the NRDC Action Fund to lead and influence the executives of Access Industries, Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, AT&T, Comcast, Discovery, Facebook, Fox, Netflix, Sony, ViacomCBS, Vivendi and Walt Disney. Delegates to invest more in a clean, fair and equitable future for all.
“Climate change is threatening our communities and the future – while working now to avoid the worst effects of the climate crisis,” Cabello said.
Others who have signed the letter include Cate Blanchett, Benny Blanco, Don Chadel, Phineas, Ellen DeGeneres, Selena Gomez, Jimmy Fallon, Joy King, Lady Gaga, Dua Lipa, Shawn Mendes, Shawn Penn and Kerry Washington.
“People are seeing the effects of climate change early on, from wildfires to floods and storms,” said Julia Lewis-Dreyfus, a member of the NRDC board. “We can no longer wait to work, and our government leaders must use our voices to demand that President Biden pass the Build Back Better Agenda.”
The Build Back Better Agenda will work to address the urgency of climate change – aimed at preventing pollution, protecting health and creating jobs in the process.
The letter said, “Congress must listen to your demands. Undoubtedly, it has put forward and passed the most ambitious climate change agenda in U.S. history.”
