WASHINGTON – Today, with two weeks until the midterm elections, Friends of the Earth Action endorsed their final slate of candidates. The organization announces these endorsements to further the fight for lawmakers that will act for communities and the climate, as well as encourage the public to join in political efforts that will uplift progressives on behalf of the environment.
Ariel Moger, Friends of the Earth Action Government and Political Affairs Manager, issued the following statement:
With so much at stake in this election, we need to maintain Democratic control of both chambers of Congress to have a chance at protecting our democracy, our planet, and basic human rights. This means re-electing environmental and social justice champions and sending up-and-coming progressive advocates to Washington, D.C. We strongly urge voters across the country to support these candidates who will put people and the planet over corporate profits.
The organization endorses the following candidates:
