A Green Wave

The results of Rhode Island’s 2020 primary election show a Green Wave crashing onto the State House shores. Fully 13 of CARI’s 18 endorsed climate champions won their races, many against entrenched DINO incumbents.

CARI’s 2020 Primary Endorsements

Climate Action Rhode Island is thrilled to announce its complete round of endorsements for Rhode Island’s Democratic primary elections, which take place this September 8.

Endorsement: Leonela Felix for House District 61 (Pawtucket)

“Both the costs of an extractive fossil fuel system and the disastrous effects of the climate crisis fall disproportionately on immigrants, low-income communities, and people of color — in other words, on families like mine.”

Endorsement: Lenny Cioe for Senate District 4 (N. Providence / Providence)

CARI is happy to endorse Leonardo (Lenny) Cioe. Lenny is a career nurse who has been working on the front lines during the current Covid-19 crisis and understands first-hand the threat that this pandemic represents. Yet he also recognizes that the threat of Covid-19 pales in comparison to what we all as Rhode Islanders, Americans, and occupants of this planet face in the climate crisis.
