Washington, DC (December 5, 2022) -- Climate Reality Action Fund’s (CRAF) midterm election efforts turned out critical climate voters in Nevada and Arizona this cycle, helping to secure wins for climate champions in both the Senate and the House.
“We are in the midst of a crucial moment for climate action, and every single vote matters,” said Phyllis Cuttino, CEO of the Climate Reality Action Fund. “Voters in Nevada and Arizona know firsthand how devastating the climate crisis can be and they turned out to ensure climate candidates made it across the finish line. Thanks in part to the work of the Climate Reality Action Fund, Senator Cortez Masto was re-elected to the Senate and Representatives Lee and Horsford were re-elected to the House. Congress must now continue to address the climate crisis and ensure that IRA funding goes to the communities who need it most.”
Climate Reality Action Fund was one of the first organizations on the ground in Nevada and Arizona to register voters this cycle. Targeting young and marginalized voters with a climate message, Climate Reality Action Fund:
