April 7th, 2022

Charlotte – State Sen. Jeff Jackson has now earned endorsements from the North Carolina AFL-CIO and League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund in his campaign for Congress in North Carolina’s newly-drawn, competitive 14th district.

The North Carolina AFL-CIO is the largest association of unions of working people in North Carolina, representing over a hundred thousand members. The LCV Action Fund works to elect leaders who stand up for clean air, clean water, public lands, and a safe and just climate.

“I’m honored to be endorsed by these two distinguished organizations,” said Sen. Jackson. “As a father of young children who will live to see the long-term consequences of climate change, we must take swift action to protect our environment and promote clean energy solutions in our economy. This goes hand-in-hand with helping workers by ensuring good-paying jobs, enacting paid leave and investing in apprenticeship programs.”

“State Senator Jeff Jackson has been a climate and environmental justice champion throughout his time in the state legislature and we are thrilled to support his campaign for Congress so he can keep fighting for all North Carolinians,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “Senator Jackson has made it clear that climate, racial justice, and democracy will continue to be his top priorities and we look forward to having his voice in Congress fighting to advance our clean energy economy, create good-paying jobs, and protect the health and safety of all communities.”
