Jack Pratt is the Senior Political Director for EDF Action, where he leads political engagement to help support pro-environment candidates and elected officials across the country.

More recently, he has helped hold the Trump Administration accountable for environmental rollbacks, successfully fight anti-environment Trump administration nominations and worked to stop anti-environment legislation in the first years of the Trump administration.

Steve Israel, a former chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the co-founder, with Jay Inslee, of the House Sustainable Energy and Environment Coalition.
