Washington, D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect candidates who will support sound environmental policies, announced today its endorsement of Dr. Hiral Tipirneni for Congress in Arizona’s 6th Congressional District.

“Dr. Hiral Tipirneni is a leader in Arizona who knows just how important it is for children throughout the state to have access to clean air, safe drinking water, and a healthy environment,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “With her experience as an emergency room doctor and cancer researcher, Dr. Tipirneni understands the life and death risks posed to our families by pollution and the impacts of climate change. We can count on Dr. Tipirneni to be a strong clean energy champion in the U.S. House of Representatives and we are proud to endorse her campaign.”

“We support Dr. Hiral Tipirneni, her campaign elevates the importance of protecting our children’s health and advancing climate justice and is what Arizona’s 6th Congressional District needs,” said Chispa Arizona Political Director Gloria Montaño. “Dr. Tipirneni is the kind of leader Arizona needs to ensure that our fight for clean and renewable energy and a healthy climate are deeply centered on the needs of communities – especially  communities of color and low-income communities – that are on the frontlines of pollution and climate change.”

“I am honored to receive the endorsement from the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund. My right wing opponent, Congressman Schweikert, has called climate change “folklore” and has consistently voted for legislation that has harmed our environment and Arizona families,” said Dr. Hiral Tipirneni. “Climate change is a real threat to our economy and future, and we must elect leaders who will put forward bold solutions to address this crisis head-on. If elected, I will fight every day to ensure all Arizonans have access to clean air, safe drinking water, and a healthy environment.”

Dr. Hiral Tipirneni is an emergency room doctor and cancer researcher who understands the health and safety consequences of pollution on our children and families. She understands that Arizona should be at the forefront of fighting climate change, by investing in clean energy initiatives, especially solar and wind power, which will help grow the economy. Tipirneni is a proven problem-solver and fresh voice, and her priorities in Congress include strengthening public health protections and incentivizing the transition to renewable energy.
