BGA Sends Letter of Support to Congress to Confirm Granholm for DOE Secretary

As a coalition of the nation’s largest labor unions and environmental groups, collectively representing millions of members and supporters, the BlueGreen Alliance writes in full support of the nomination of the Honorable Jennifer Granholm to be the next Secretary of Energy.

And she will do all of this in ways that lift up communities and workers and prioritizes investments in workers and communities that need it most—including those workers and regions impacted by energy transition.
