Clean Water Action Endorses Nellie Gorbea for Governor

Vote logo
Clean Water Action and our members celebrated many environmental victories in the 2022 legislative session. Rhode Island’s General Assembly passed legislation to protect Rhode Islanders from toxic PFAS, set the strongest renewable energy standard in America, ban single-use plastic bags, and expand opportunities for Rhode Islanders to vote.
 
We win campaigns when our grassroots members reach out to their elected officials, but also when our grassroots members turn out to VOTE.

Each election cycle, Clean Water Action endorses candidates at the state and federal level who share our environmental goals and who have voted for and advocated for legislation to advance those goals. Check out our list of endorsees!

Nellie supports:

  • Prioritizing the goals of the “Act on Climate” to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
  • Making our cities and towns more resilient to the impacts of climate change.
  • Developing our state’s renewable energy economy and forging partnerships to create worker training programs to ensure that RI renewable energy projects employ RI residents.
  • Incentivizing the development of sustainable housing with access to mass transit.
  • Legislative efforts to reduce plastic consumption and plastic waste including a beverage container deposit program.
