It’s never been easy for climate justice leaders like Don McEachin to take on Virginia’s powerful coal lobby. But recent redistricting in the state means we have a really good shot at winning over Virginia’s new 4th District. We can help make that happen.
At the end of the day, global warming is a moral crisis that requires bold action. Residents in Virginia are already seeing fossil-fueled flooding across the state. Don understands that. And with climate hawks like you behind him, he is going to fight hard in the House of Representatives for climate justice. Take a look at his record as a state legislator in Virginia:
- Cofounded the Virginia Environment and Renewable Energy Caucus
- Passed a bill in 2014 to create Virginia’s Offshore Wind Development Authority
- Won bipartisan support for a bill to increase penalties by 250% for known polluters in a GOP-controlled Virginia Senate
- Proposed comprehensive climate resilience legislation to slash carbon pollution and protect Virginia’s coasts
Don won his Red to Blue race with 83.6% of the vote.
