EDF Action congratulates U.S. Representative AbigailSpanberger (VA-07) on winning re-election.

“Voters sent a strong message by re-electing Abigail Spanberger to Congress,” said EDF Action President Joe Bonfiglio. “Abigail Spanberger has time and again proven that she will always put Virginia families first by protecting the environment and growing the economy. We are proud to support Abigail Spanberger in her re-election bid and we know she’ll continue to work to find bipartisan solutions that benefit her district.” 

EDF Action Votes ran two television ads on the issue of public health.

EDF Action also worked to deploy grassroots activists through the Green Wave program, where the group had on-the-ground organizers and mobilized EDF Action members for Rep. Spanberger’s re-election campaign. The Green Wave was a nationwide membership mobilization program done in partnership with the Sierra Club, NRDC Action Fund, National Wildlife Federation Action Fund and League of Conservation Voters where the groups helped to elect and re-elect pro-environment candidates in key battleground districts across the country.
