A Livingston County woman will discuss issues surrounding climate change with one of Michigan’s U.S Senators.
In Honor Of Women’s History Month, Moms Clean Air Force’s Elizabeth Hauptman of Brighton will interview US Senator Debbie Stabenow about her work in the Senate to fight air pollution and climate change.
According to a release from Moms Clean Air Force, Hauptman and Sen. Stabenow Elizabeth will also discuss how bold investments in climate will protect the health and future of kids in Michigan and beyond.
As a member of the Environment and Public Works Committee and a senior member of the Budget Committee and Finance Committee, Stabenow has championed legislation to enable more consumers to purchase zero-emission vehicles, funding for critically important public health programs, and efforts to ensure clean and affordable drinking water for children in Michigan.
The interview will be broadcast live on the Moms Clean Air Force Facebook page this afternoon, Tuesday, March 29, at 5PM and then rebroadcast on Thursday, March 31 at 2PM.
Moms Clean Air Force describes itself as a “community of over 1 million moms and dads united against air pollution—including the urgent crisis of our changing climate—to protect our children’s health.“
The organization has a network of state-based community organizers, who work on national and local policy issues, meeting with lawmakers at every level of government and on both sides of the political aisle to build support for “equitable, just, and healthy solutions to pollution.”
