Food & Water Action Endorses LD26 Assembly Candidate Christine Clarke
Jefferson Twp., NJ: 26th Legislative District State Assembly candidate Christine Clarke has received the endorsement of Food & Water Action. Food & Water Action mobilizes everyday people as a grassroots political force advocating bold and uncompromised solutions to the most pressing food, water, and climate problems of our time.
“Food and Water Action is a powerful voice in the coalition of organizations fighting to protect people and planet from corporate polluters, which account for 71% of the toxic emissions contributing to climate change and compromising clean air and water. Together, with our allies, we can not only advance important initiatives to protect our environment, but capitalize on New Jersey’s ideal location and unique economic opportunity to become a leader in renewable energy and ecotourism, and create jobs – around the state and here in our district,” said Clarke.
“If we’re going to take on massive climate polluters, transition the state to 100% renewables, and protect clean and affordable public drinking water for all, we need champions like Christine Clarke fighting for us in the New Jersey legislature,” said Food & Water Action organizer Matt Smith. “Christine Clarke has committed to champion bold policies like an immediate moratorium on fossil fuel expansion projects, as well as a rapid and fair transition to clean renewable energy. These are exactly the kind of solutions we need in the fight to protect clean water and a livable climate future.”
As the latest major environmental advocacy organization to endorse Christine Clarke for Assembly, Food and Water Action joins The New Jersey Sierra Club, New Jersey League of Conservation Voters, Clean Water Action, and The Center for Biological Diversity in sending a clear message about the important voice Clarke will have in protecting our clean air and water, public health and stewardship of our natural resources while welcoming tens of thousands of well-paying jobs across a variety of industries as clean energy advances in New Jersey.
Clarke is an environmental advocate, a grassroots organizer and a mother-of-four running for State Assembly to advance clean energy jobs, protect clean air and water, improve healthcare, and legislate with empathy and fiscal responsibility. She is endorsed by a number of unions, environmental groups, women’s rights organizations, civic engagement and grassroots coalitions.
