The BlueGreen Alliance, a national partnership of labor unions and environmental organizations, today announced the organization has endorsed Debbie Dingell for the Sixth Congressional District in Michigan.
“Hard-working union men and women are the backbone of our country, and I’m committed to ensuring we invest in our workers as we transition to a cleaner economy and take on climate change,” said Rep. Dingell. “In Congress, I have worked hard to make sure everyone has a seat at the table as we craft solutions to the most urgent challenges of our day—which include addressing climate change and other threats to our environment while strengthening our economy. I’m proud to have the endorsement of the BlueGreen Alliance, because I firmly believe our clean energy economy will be built by American workers, and that we can protect our environment while creating good-paying jobs here at home.”
The endorsement is a recognition of the leadership of Rep. Dingell to create good-paying union jobs, fight economic and racial injustice, and reduce the emissions driving climate change. Rep. Dingell voted for several key priorities, including the Inflation Reduction Act and Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
“The BlueGreen Alliance is proud to endorse Debbie Dingell 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. Rep. Dingell is a champion for building a clean, prosperous, and equitable future and is the best choice in the race for the Sixth Congressional District in Michigan.”
“We are excited to work alongside Rep. Dingell 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.
