Washington, DC: League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski issued the following statement on the passing of philanthropist Eli Broad:
“We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Eli Broad. While deservedly long known as a monumental supporter of the arts, culture and science, we are also deeply grateful to, and proud of, Eli and Edythe’s support of LCV Victory Fund’s work to elect climate champions. The Broads’ early support played a critical role in LCV Victory Fund’s ClimateVote2020 campaign, focused heavily on environmental swing voters in battleground presidential states. That support helped deliver the mandate for climate justice that the Biden-Harris administration began acting on starting on Day One. Our thoughts are with Edythe, the entire Broad family, and their staff, and we will endeavor to keep working to fulfil their vision of climate action centering justice and equity.
