Washington, D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect candidates who will implement support sound environmental policies, announced today its endorsement of Ammar Campa-Najjar for Congress in California’s 50th Congressional District.

“It is an honor to receive the endorsement of League of Conservation Voters Action Fund,” said Ammar Campa-Najjar. “One of my goals when I started this journey, was to lift up a generation of unheard voters and invest in our country’s environmental future. Now more than ever, it is important that we protect our natural habitats from desecration and pollution. With the League of Conservation Voters, I will advocate for sensible environmental policies and champion these issues in Congress.”
