WV v EPA Climate Rally 
On February 28, the U.S. Supreme Court heard from coal companies and their partisan allies in the case WV v EPA, a lawsuit which aims to gut the Clean Air Act and limit the federal government's ability to address climate change. I traveled to Washington, DC to join climate activists and participate in the Supreme Court Climate Rally Day of Activation Event. 225 advocates gathered to send a message that the EPA’s authority to regulate pollution under the Clean Air Act is a public health necessity and crucial in our fight against climate change.
