Endorse Bernie’s Environmental Vision

We are environmentalists, climate change activists, and environmental justice advocates from all walks of life that share a vision of the future for our country. We seek a nation that:

  • Transitions away from fossil fuels toward a 100% clean, sustainable, nuclear-free energy system, and ensures a stable climate for both present and future generations;

 

  • Realizes climate and environmental justice by addressing the ways in which climate change and pollution disproportionately impact communities of color, indigenous peoples, low-income neighborhoods, women, new immigrants, and working class families;

 

  • Achieves clean production and the use of safer alternatives to toxic chemicals;

 

  • Provides open green space in all urban, suburban, and rural communities;

 

  • Preserves pristine wilderness areas, national parks, wildlife habitat, and endangered species;

 

  • Recognizes the sovereignty and jurisdictional rights of indigenous peoples;

 

  • Ensures access to healthy food grown in a sustainable manner with safe working conditions for farmworkers and farmers;

 

  • Safeguards the vitality of our coastlines, estuaries, lakes, rivers, oceans, and marine life;

 

  • Protects public health by cleaning up the air, water, and land, and eliminating exposure to harmful substances in the environment;

 

  • Invests in affordable mass transportation systems, including high-speed passenger rail;

 

  • Promotes principles of economic equity, social justice, democratic participation, and sustainability in environmental problem-solving and policy.

We seek a nation with an economy predicated on fair trade, green jobs and just transition for workers in affected industries, real living wages, consumer protection from predatory practices, occupational health and safety, and full access to high quality health care and education as a right of citizenship.

 

We seek a nation where our democracy is protected from the corruptive influence of billionaires and corporate polluters currently flooding the political system with money in an attempt to roll-back environmental regulations, worker rights, and public health policies.

 

Bernie Sanders is dedicated to achieving this vision as well, and for this reason, we endorse his candidacy to become the next President of the United States of America. Bernie has a long-standing commitment to fighting for the environment, achieving a 95% lifetime rating on the national environmental scorecard of the League of Conservation Voters. This score is better than any other presidential candidate. In the 113th Congress, Bernie also received a 95 score from Climate Hawks for his work on climate and clean energy policy, the highest rating of any Senator in the Congress.Furthermore, a new political scorecard by 350.org Action shows that Bernie is the only presidential candidate with a spotless record when it comes to the climate movement’s top priorities. With 22,156 votes cast, Bernie Sanders has earned Climate Hawks Vote Political Action’s endorsement in the 2016 Democratic presidential primary with an extraordinary 92.2% of the vote.On issues ranging from Arctic drilling to fossil fuel divestment to fracking to #ExxonKnew, the senator from Vermont has taken strong stances—going as far as to call for an outright ban on frackingBernie has a long track record of activism and political service in support of the environment, racial justice, economic equality, labor rights, and grassroots democracy. He refuses to create a Super-PAC or be influenced by the big money offered by major corporate polluters. He is a candidate of the people, and We can win! A stunning new poll by Quinnipiac suggests Bernie Sanders is the most electable candidate in either party to be the next president of the United States. We are looking to coalesce leaders, public figures, and ordinary people to challenge our broken political system and fight for environmental justice and a sustainable future.

 

We are Environmentalists for Bernie. Please join our efforts, and help make this vision a reality. Join the political revolution today!
