FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(Washington, D.C. – November 5, 2020) EDF Action congratulates U.S. Representative Haley Stevens (MI-11) on winning re-election.”Voters sent a strong pro-environmental message by re-electing Haley Stevens to Congress,” said EDF Action President Joe Bonfiglio. “Stevens is a tireless advocate for Michigan families – finding commonsense solutions to make our planet more sustainable with cleaner air and water. We are proud to have supported Haley Stevens and her re-election bid because we know she’ll advocate for bipartisan solutions that benefit her district.”

EDF Action worked to deploy grassroots activist through the Green Wave program, where the group deployed on-the-ground organizers and mobilized EDF Action members for Rep. Stevens’ 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.

Through Green Wave, Rep. Stevens partnered with EDF Action for two virtual events: a phone bank and a Get Out the Vote event.

Paid for by EDF Action, edfaction.org, and not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee.
