Beth Doglio Endorsed by League of Conservation Voters

On Thursday, the League of Conservation Voters announced the endorsement of State Rep. Beth Doglio for Congress in Washington’s 10th Congressional District. The endorsement underscores Doglio’s three decades of environmental leadership and activism, along with her vision for the future.

“I am honored to have earned the endorsement of the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund,” said Doglio. “We must act on the climate crisis now: for our people, for our planet, for the health of our communities, and for our future. The stakes are too high to settle for the status quo – we need environmental champions who will lead bold action in Congress.”

Doglio was the first Executive Director of the Washington Conservation Voters, developing 15 chapters, creating a robust voter education program, and helping spur state chapters across the country. She has spent the last 13 years at Climate Solutions, where she led the regional Power Past Coal campaign. As a state legislator, Doglio helped pass Washington’s landmark 100% Clean Energy legislation and sponsored one of the nation’s first clean buildings standards laws. Last week, Doglio signed the No Fossil Fuel Money pledge.

See what the League of Conservation Voters, elected officials, environmental leaders, and the media are saying about the endorsement:
