The BlueGreen Alliance, a national partnership of labor unions and environmental organizations, today announced the organization has endorsed Nikki Budzinski for the 13th Congressional District in Illinois.
The endorsement is a recognition that Budzinski 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 Nikki Budzinski 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. Budzinski is a champion for building a clean, prosperous, and equitable future and is the best choice in the race for the 13th Congressional District in Illinois.”
“We are excited to work alongside Nikki Budzinski 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.
