Recognizing Children’s Fundamental Rights and Climate Recovery Planning Resolution

Recognizing Children’s Fundamental Rights and Climate Recovery Planning Resolution

9/28/2020

The League of Women Voters of Oregon (LWVOR) joins the National League of Women Voters In Endorsing Concurrent Resolution 47. Both Leagues passionately agree with the resolution in addressing “the rights of children, the disproportionate impacts from climate change on youth and the need for a national focused climate recovery planning process. It’s very clear we must implement a federal plan based on solid science that ensures ending this century by returning to a stable climate defined as reducing global atmospheric carbon dioxide to below 350 parts per million by the year 2100”.

To gain further support and express gratitude for our congressional delegation members who have already co-sponsored this important resolution, LWVOR has issued the following letters:

Senator Ron Wyden

Senator Jeff Merkley

Representative Peter DeFazio

Representative Earl Blumenauer

Representative Suzanne Bonamici

Representative Kurt Schrader

Representative Greg Walden
