Food & Water Action and Climate Hawks Vote are endorsing California Assemblywoman Laura Friedman in her campaign for California’s 30th Congressional District.
Friedman has been a climate champion in the California legislature. Friedman has a long track record of protecting Californians from drought, climate change, and toxic chemicals. She is the only top-tier candidate in the race to sign the No Fossil Fuel Money pledge.
With Rep. Adam Schiff running for U.S. Senate, the 30th Congressional District is ripe for a progressive woman leader like Friedman to take the reins. And with nearly half a million dollars cash on hand as of the last campaign finance disclosure deadline, she has the resources needed to go toe-to-toe with opponents who are fundraising from corporate interests.
Food & Water Action Political Director Sam Bernhardt said:
“Laura Friedman will be the climate champion we need in Congress. As an Assemblymember in Sacramento, Friedman has a proven record on climate change. She has also been at the forefront of protecting Californians from PFAS exposure and drought. Her record proves Laura will be the environmental advocate we need in Congress.”
Climate Hawks Vote Political Director RL Miller said:
“Laura Friedman has been a true climate hawk in the state legislature, fearless about tackling tough issues like parking and transit, equally fearless about taking on the fossil fuel industry head-on. We’re excited to see her in Congress.”
