WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 28, 2022) — The National Wildlife Federation Action Fund has endorsed North Carolina U.S. Senate candidate Cheri Beasley, citing her support for developing clean power and common-sense climate solutions, prioritizing environmental justice, protecting clean air and water, and preventing offshore drilling off the state’s coast.
“As chief justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court and throughout her years of public service, Cheri Beasley has demonstrated leadership that centers the people of the Tarheel State. Now more than ever we need leaders like Cheri in the U.S. Senate to champion conservation solutions that don’t leave anyone behind,” said Collin O’Mara, CEO of the National Wildlife Federation Action Fund. “From the climate-fueled disasters North Carolina faces today to challenges it could face down the road, like irresponsible offshore drilling, Cheri understands that Congress has a responsibility to work for people and wildlife alike. The National Wildlife Federation Action Fund is proud to endorse Cheri Beasley’s election to the U.S. Senate.”
The National Wildlife Federation Action Fund (a 501(c)(4) organization) works to raise the visibility of key conservation issues with voters and elected officials. Through grassroots action and focused legislative campaigns, the National Wildlife Federation Action Fund advocates for wildlife and outdoor enthusiasts from all walks of life and political stripes to ensure they have a voice in the democratic process.
To ensure a big tent for our shared conservation values, we remain fiercely bi-partisan and put conservation of our air, water, land and wildlife above political party. We believe in bi-partisan solutions, and welcome all who are stewards of the earth to join us. We advocate for natural resource protection, wildlife conservation and outdoor education to meet our top goals of protecting wildlife and wild places and connecting people with nature.
The National Wildlife Federation Action Fund is the sister organization to the National Wildlife Federation (a 501(c)(3) organization), America’s largest wildlife conservation organization.
