The League joined 78 organizations on a letter to Congress opposing legislation from Representative Whitfield and Senator Manchin. The legislation would allow power plants to continue dumping unlimited amounts of carbon pollution into the air, contributing to the climate change that puts our health and communities at risk with devastating extreme weather events. Ensuring that there are limits on carbon pollution from power plants is an issue that the League has been very active on and this legislation goes against everything the League has worked for.

*Note this post has been updated to refelect additional supportive organizations who have joined this letter. This letter was first sent in November 2013 and was resent in January 2014.


This year, the League will participate in the second annual #GivingTuesday campaign on December 3, 2013. In the same way that retail stores come together to offer deals on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday brings the nonprofit community together on a universal platform to raise awareness about the importance of supporting our valuable missions and work.
