We’re taking a stand for a better House of Representatives, and endorsing Doyle Canning for Congress in Oregon’s Fourth District.
Doyle came out of the climate movement, and she’s running because the current incumbent -- in office since 1986 -- isn’t doing enough to combat the climate crisis. She’s an organizer and activist who cut her teeth on the anti-globalism WTO fights. She’s nationally known as a leader of progressive social movements, whether opposing the Iraq war, supporting farmworker rights, or taking on big banks. Equally important, as the mother of young children, she’s fighting for a better world for the next generations.
Doyle won our survey of climate hawks in the district with 83 percent of the vote.
We’re joining 350 Action in endorsing Doyle. She also has the support of every local climate group that issues endorsements: the Corvallis chapter of the Sunrise Movement, the Eugene chapter of Democratic Socialists of America, Rural Oregon Progressives, and the Sustainable Energy & Economy Network.
Oregon’s fourth district is the kind of Democratic-leaning district that can be won by a climate hawk. It contains college campuses, environmentally sensitive coasts, and forests, and a lot of climate activists already riled up about the Jordan Cove liquefied natural gas terminal proposal (thankfully, the project appears dead). This district is part of our plan to upgrade the House by backing fierce climate hawks who can win, and then prioritize climate action.
