Defending the environment from federal assault

*** No candidate for Attorney General has been endorsed by the CDP ***

For years, I’ve been committed to tackling climate change, ensuring our drinking water is safe and our air clean. As Attorney General, I’ve prioritized defending laws that double to protect our environment and public health. I’ve sued the Trump Administration 16 times for rolling back or repealing environmental safeguards with 9 legal victories so far.

That’s why I’m proud to have earned the endorsement of Sierra Club California, one of the country’s oldest and largest grassroots environmental organizations.

In the endorsement, Sierra Club California Director Kathryn Phillips said, “Attorney General Becerra has proven in the last year that he is more than willing and able to defend California’s environment from federal assault. He understands—and acts on—the need to make sure everyone in the state has clean air, clean water and a healthy environment.”

Protecting the environment in court is critical to defending California’s values. As a recent LA Times column noted, I will continue to be “a megaphone for progressive values.”

I hope you’ll join me in my campaign to remain your Attorney General.

Sincerely,

Xavier
