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.”

We believe that radical change is necessary and only by transforming our political system will we create the opportunity to take bold action on climate change. We elect and cultivate environmental champions, turn election victories into policy wins, hold our lawmakers accountable, and build political power for change. We inspire hope and action and fight for equity and justice for all Californians. We are in the business of changing what’s possible. Join us at www.ecovote.org and on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. See more press releases.
