“Environmental champions are in competitive races for Congress this cycle in more places than ever before. We are proud to support this diverse slate of endorsees, who are demonstrating that a pro-climate, pro-clean energy message is smart politics everywhere.”

The NRDC Action Fund is engaged in its largest-ever electoral effort to support pro-environment federal candidates and turn out the vote in key states. The NRDC Action Fund PAC is also supporting GiveGreen, a platform for environmentally minded political donors that has raised tens of millions of dollars for climate champions running for office, including more than $32 million so far in the 2020 cycle.

These 14 new endorsees join dozens of previously announced candidate endorsements, making this the NRDC Action Fund’s largest ever endorsement slate.
