OAKLAND, CA & WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 8, 2016)—The California League of Conservation Voters CEO Sarah Rose and the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld congratulate Jared Huffman (CA-2), Dr. Ami Bera (CA-7), Jerry McNerney (CA-9), Julia Brownley (CA-26), Pete Aguilar (CA-31), Grace Napolitano (CA-32), Linda Sánchez (CA-38), Nanette Barragán (CA-44), Alan Lowenthal (CA-47) and Scott Peters (CA-52):

“We congratulate these outstanding environmental leaders on advancing to the general election. Each of these leaders have worked to protect our air, water, land, and wildlife in their own unique ways throughout their time in public service, from opposing drilling off of the California coast to fighting environmental injustices to finding ways to conserve water during the drought to advancing meaningful solutions to the climate crisis. Their strong showings are huge steps forward for these environmental champions who are on their way to being elected or re-elected to the U.S. House of Representatives where they will continue efforts to grow our clean energy economy, protect our environment, and safeguard the air we breathe and the water we drink.”

About LCV Action Fund

The League of Conservation Voters Action Fund (LCVAF), the connected federal political action committee (PAC) of the League of Conservation Voters, works to elect candidates who will implement sound environmental laws and policies, and defeat those who stand in the way of progress. Since the 1994 election cycle, LCVAF has helped elect and re-elect 69 U.S. Senators and 306 members of the U.S. House of Representatives.  In the 2013-2014 election cycle, LCVAF endorsed over 70 candidates and raised and donated almost $6 million dollars via GiveGreen. Over the last several years, our efforts have also helped elevate climate change and clean energy as critical issues in key elections.
