    S4 Ep 19: Inflation Reduction Act Roundtable w/ Rhiana Gunn Wright, Dana Johnson, and Bishop Marcia Dinkins

    S4 Ep 19: Inflation Reduction Act Roundtable w/ Rhiana Gunn Wright, Dana Johnson, and Bishop Marcia Dinkins

    On Friday, August 12, 2022, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Inflation Reduction Act, sending the bill to President Joe Biden for his signature. There is a lot of nuance around the bill, but to be clear, “the largest piece of climate legislation” does not go far enough to protect Black and Indigenous communities. That said, we understand the need for climate legislation, because if you don’t shape policy, policy will shape you.







    The Coolest Show Producer Tamara Toles O’Laughlin discusses the bill with the Roosevelt Institute’s Director of Climate Policy Rhiana Gunn Wright, WE ACT Senior Director of Strategy and Federal Policy Dana Johnson, and Black Appalachian Coalition Founder Bishop Marcia Dinkins. This week’s special guests go into detail about how we can and must continue fighting for environmental justice.
