The BlueGreen Alliance, a national partnership of labor unions and environmental organizations, today announced the organization has endorsed Chris Deluzio for the 17th Congressional District in Pennsylvania.
“I will always fight for strong union jobs here in western Pennsylvania, clean air and water, and our energy security today and in the years to come. I’m proud to earn the BlueGreen Alliance endorsement, which recognizes that we all deserve good jobs and an environment where our kids can grow and prosper,” said Deluzio.
The endorsement is a recognition that Deluzio is a leader in the efforts to create good-paying union jobs, fight economic and racial injustice, and reduce the emissions driving climate change.
“The BlueGreen Alliance is proud to endorse Chris Deluzio for Congress,” said BlueGreen Alliance Executive Director Jason Walsh. “Our organization is founded on the belief that we don’t have to choose between good jobs and a clean environment; we can and must have both. Deluzio is a champion for building a clean, prosperous, and equitable future and is the best choice in the race for the 17th Congressional District in Pennsylvania.”
“We are excited to work alongside Chris Deluzio in this election and beyond,” said Walsh.
This is the first year that the BlueGreen Alliance is endorsing candidates for Congress. Previously, the organization endorsed Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for President and Vice President of the United States in 2020—the first such endorsement in the organization’s history.
