Clean Water Action, League of Conservation Voters Action Fund Endorse Cicilline for Re-election

PROVIDENCE Two leading environmental organizations, Rhode Island’s Clean Water Action and the national League of Conservation Voters Action Fund, endorsed U.S. Congressman David Cicilline’s campaign for reelection to Congress.

“Rhode Island is an incredibly special place to call home. Our coastlines and abundant natural resources require steadfast stewardship so that generations to come will be able to enjoy these national treasures,” said Congressman Cicilline. “I’m honored to have the endorsement of both Clean Water Action and the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund. I’ll continue fighting in Congress to address climate change, protect our environment, and advance green energy.” 

“Representative David Cicilline is a steadfast leader who has proven his commitment to fighting for people and our environment over corporate polluters and their profits,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “We are excited to support his campaign and work with him to ensure all communities in Rhode Island and beyond have a healthy environment, a just and equitable democracy, and good paying jobs. The Ocean State is the proud home to so much natural beauty but also one of the most vulnerable states to climate change. We need more people like Representative Cicilline in Congress fighting for a healthier, greener, and more equitable future for all.” 

“Congressman Cicilline is a leading environmental voice in Congress.” said Jed Thorp, RI State Director with Clean Water Action. “He has been an advocate for renewable energy, environmental justice, and coastal resiliency and has advocated for federal legislation regulating toxic PFAS and protecting Rhode Island’s coast from off-shore drilling. We’re confident that he will continue to represent Rhode Islanders’ pro-environment values in Congress.”

Congressman Cicilline understands that climate change is one of the greatest existential threats facing our country and planet. Cicilline championed the Inflation Reduction Act, the nation’s boldest action in history to combat climate change, improve American energy security, and provide affordable clean energy to Rhode Island and our nation. And, Congressman Cicilline has been a tireless advocate for key programs, funding, and policies aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions, protecting endangered species, expanding renewable energy, improving climate resilience, addressing contaminants such as PFAS, and conserving our land and waters.
