Food & Water Action Endorses Beth Doglio for Congress

July 16, 2020

Washington, D.C. – The national environmental advocacy group Food & Water Action is endorsing Beth Doglio in her run for Washington’s 10th Congressional District.

Food & Water Action is endorsing Doglio based on her track record of championing the environment for decades, both as a nonprofit leader and as a legislator. As a member of Congress, Doglio has pledged to fight for Green New Deal legislation and a national ban on fracking.

In response, Food & Water Action Political Director Sam Bernhardt issued the following statement:

“For decades, Beth Doglio has been a leader both inside and outside of the halls of power. From founding one of Washington’s most powerful environmental groups to leading the charge for climate solutions as a state legislator, she has done it all.

“Beth Doglio is exactly the kind of leader we need in Congress. Her years of dedication to the climate fight, both as a leader in the movement to stop fossil fuel infrastructure in Washington state and as a member of the state legislature, would immediately make her one of the preeminent voices on the issue in Congress. If elected, her dedication to passing a progressive agenda and willingness to challenge the status quo will be invaluable qualities in the fight to protect our food, water, and climate. We are excited to endorse Beth’s campaign and send her to Congress next year.”

In races across the country, Food & Water Action is backing candidates who are bold leaders committed to taking on the most pressing public health, environmental and climate challenges of our time. Last month, the group helped climate champions Mondaire Jones and Jamaal Bowman cruise to victory in their New York congressional races.
