League of Women Voters Lobbying For Climate Change Bill
Members of the League of Women Voters of Indiana traveled to Washington D.C. this week to make their voices heard in support of climate change.
Members met with staffers for Senators Dick Lugar and Evan Bayh and Congressman Brad Ellsworth urging them to support the American Clean Energy Leadership Act.
Spokeswoman Pam Locker says the league takes a strong position on climate change because of the impact it has on the poorest people on the planet. Locker says often these are women trying to provide clean water and food for their families and changes such as drought and flooding can create crisis situations.
Locker says the league will continue to raise awareness on the issue. The lobbying effort was organized by Oxfam America for International Women's Day.
