Gonzalez is a climate champion, poised to move New York off fossil fuels.


For Immediate Release

Food & Water Action, the political and lobbying arm of the national advocacy organization Food & Water Watch, is endorsing community organizer Kristen Gonzalez for New York State Senate District 59.

Running in a newly drawn district inclusive of some of the city’s most polluted neighborhoods including Astoria, Queens, Gonzalez is a committed climate champion. She brings a decade-long track record of organizing in the communities she hopes to represent coupled with a detailed climate platform to move New York off fossil fuels.

Food & Water Action Senior New York Organizer Laura Shindell issued the following statement:

“When we won the fight to stop the dirty Astoria NRG fracked gas plant last year, Kristen Gonzalez was at our side. And as we demand action of Albany leadership to pass the Build Public Renewables Act, Kristen Gonzalez is at the helm. Gonzalez is a strong leader with bold vision and the fight to bring about needed change in Albany. We are proud to endorse climate champion Kristen Gonzalez for State Senate District 59.”
