Washington D.C.- The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect pro-environment candidates, and California League of Conservation Voters (CLCV) announced today their endorsement of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for reelection to Congress in California’s 12th Congressional District.
“Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a tireless champion for our planet who has fought throughout her career in Congress to ensure that all families have access to clean air, safe drinking water, and a healthy climate.” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “As the most pro-environment Speaker in history, Speaker Pelosi has fought back against President Trump’s pro-polluter, anti-environment agenda by passing legislation to meet our commitments under the Paris Climate Agreement, clean up toxic PFAS pollution, and protect our lands and waters from Big Polluters. We are honored to support her campaign for reelection and we know that her continued leadership in the House is critical to our ability to advance bold and just policies to solve the climate crisis and invest in a 100% clean energy future.”
“Speaker Nancy Pelosi is our last line of defense against the extremism of the Trump Administration,” said Mary Creasman CEO of the California League of Conservation Voters. “CLCV is proud to announce our support for a champion for Californian families. As the climate crisis worsens, we need environmental leaders like the Speaker fighting to ensure our communities have access to clean air and water.”
“It is an honor to have the support of the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund and California LCV during this critical time when Republican leadership willfully caters to the special interests and turns a blind eye to the climate crisis,” said Speaker Pelosi. “With LCV by our side, we will continue fighting to ensure our children and their children inherit a world in which the air they breathe is clean of toxins and the water they drink is safe for their health by pushing for policies that protect our planet and bring about good-paying, clean energy jobs.”
Speaker Nancy Pelosi has made history, time and again — as the first woman to serve as minority whip, the first woman to serve as minority leader and the head a major party in Congress, and the first woman to serve as speaker of the House. It is important to note the leading role Speaker Pelosi has played throughout her career to advance action to solve the climate crisis and protecting clean air, safe drinking water, and our public lands. As the leader of the pro-environment House majority, Pelosi has an impressive list of accomplishments in the 116th Congress that put our health and environment first, including: reinstating the Select Committee on the Climate Crisis, championing the passage of the Climate Action Now Act (HR9), and passing legislation to fund critical environmental and public health programs, safeguard our drinking water, and protect our coasts and public lands from devastating fossil fuel extraction. Speaker Pelosi is a dedicated champion for our planet and has earned an impressive 94% lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard.
