The Congressional Safe Climate Caucus this week welcomed nine new members into its ranks for the 116th Congress. With these new additions, the Safe Climate Caucus is officially 61 members strong.  

“We are honored to welcome our new members to the Safe Climate Caucus. As the Trump administration walks us back years in the fight to protect the environment and public health, the American people need committed public servants who will stand up to the White House and fight for action on the moral issue of our time: climate change. We will continue to show the world that the United State has leaders who are still willing to lead on climate and find bold solutions to address this generational crisis,” said co-chairs Reps. Alan Lowenthal (CA-47) and Don Beyer (VA-08).

New members include:

·         Gil Cisneros (CA-39)

·         Deb Haaland (NM-01)

·         Katie Hill (CA-25)

·         Ro Khanna (CA-17)

·         Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC)

·         Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01)

·         Harley Rouda (CA-48)

·         Gregorio Kilili Camacho Sablan (D-MP)

·         Frederica Wilson (FL-24)

The Congressional Safe Climate Caucus is composed of over 60 Members of the U.S. House of Representatives who are dedicated to highlighting and taking meaningful action on climate change. The Caucus believes that they have an obligation to raise awareness on climate change science, impacts and solutions, and strives to work with all Members of the political spectrum to address the realities of a changing climate.
