WALDORF, MD – Mckayla Wilkes, Democratic candidate for Maryland’s 5th Congressional District, has been endorsed by 350 Action:

“We are excited to support the next generation of climate leaders in Congress. As we enter the climate decade, it is critical to amplifying forward-thinking candidates whose platforms are the zeitgeist of how we address the climate crisis,” said Natalie Mebane, 350 Action’s Policy Director.

350 Action is endorsing candidates who have voiced and demonstrated their commitment to progressive action on climate change, by supporting a just transition away from fossil fuels towards 100% renewable energy that centers workers through a Green New Deal, and advocating to keep fossil fuels in the ground.

“We are absolutely thrilled to receive an endorsement from 350 Action. This campaign is dedicated to taking bold progressive action to mitigate and strengthen resilience against the effects of climate change,” Wilkes said. “As a coastal area, Maryland is especially vulnerable to the climate crisis. It’s imperative that we elect politicians who understand the severity of climate change and will address it with the utmost urgency. I vow to do just that.”
