Aurora, CO -- Today, Sierra Club Colorado announced its endorsement of Jason Crow in the election for Colorado’s 6th Congressional District.
“The Sierra Club is proud to endorse Jason Crow for Congress,” said Dr Lloyd Burton, Chair of Sierra Club Colorado Environmental Justice Committee. “A supporter of the Paris Climate Accord, in Congress Jason will champion Colorado’s role as a national leader in renewable energy technology research and production while protecting our clean air and water, our public lands, and our public health.”
Crow has released a detailed policy paper on his plan for America’s energy and environmental future, where he details his plan to protect our wild and public places, make America a leader on climate action once again, and transition the country off of dirty fuels.
"Our children are 5th generation Coloradans and I am running to make sure that we leave future generations with a better world,” said Jason Crow. “I am honored to be endorsed by the Sierra Club and I look forward to working with their members to fight for our environment and ensure we have a safe and healthy community. Climate change is the greatest threat facing our planet and we must combat it while being a world leader in sustainability and growing our economy. Our campaign is building a coalition that can act on our values and move our country in a better direction. And we are proud to be partnering with Sierra Club in that fight."
Colorado’s primary election is on June 26, 2018.
“Jason’s commitment to reject the ploys of corporate polluters and set a plan in place to transition America onto 100% clean energy further cements his status as a climate champion,” said Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune. “The Sierra Club will proudly mobilize its members to elect Jason to Congress."
