A BIG green endorsement: the Sierra Club!

This week, Peter was endorsed by the Sierra Club!

For decades, the Sierra Club has led the global environmental movement. In our country, they've worked to reduce fossil fuel consumption, hold corporate polluters accountable, and invest in our clean energy future.

We're thrilled that they're honoring Peter's record on the environment.

In his time in Congress, Peter's always been on front lines of the fight to protect our planet: from his tireless efforts to protect our wildlife to his work to preserve our public lands and national monuments to being an original sponsor of the Green New Deal to writing the 21st Century Infrastructure Framework – "The Green New Deal 2.0."

Most recently, Peter made sure that any airlines that accepted taxpayer bailout money from the CARES Act also agreed to reduce their carbon footprint dramatically. (The airlines approved the terms, but Senate Republicans cut them out of the final bill.)

Now, as Donald Trump is using the coronavirus as cover to step up his attacks on the environment, it's more important than ever that we have proven fighters like Peter in Washington and partners like The Sierra Club on Team DeFazio.

Stay safe. Stay strong.

Team DeFazio

As Independent as Oregon.

Peter DeFazio's common-sense proposals aim to create good-paying jobs, expand access to affordable health care and develop options outside of the for-profit marketplace, restore economic and educational opportunities, hold government accountable and tip the scales of inequality back in favor of hard-working Oregonians.
