With the Trump administration firmly committed to an agenda that promotes the interests of polluting fossil fuel corporations over public health, bold local action is required to protect public health and advance a progressive vision.
Larry Krasner has dedicated his career to defending our city’s most vulnerable communities, and he has spent decades fighting to defend the free speech rights of activists working for peace and social justice.
As district attorney, Krasner will continue the fight for justice and equality. He has pledged to bring Philadelphia’s polluters to justice, using all available means to protect the air we breathe and the water we drink. In a city with endemic pollution and shocking rates of asthma, Krasner will be a voice for environmental justice.
Food & Water Action Fund supports Larry Krasner because he wants to advocate for all Philadelphians and hold the corporate bankers and polluters accountable. Specifically, Krasner can hold companies strictly liable under the Solid Waste Management Act, the Clean Streams Law, and the Air Pollution Control Act.
We will work to educate our membership of 5,000 Philadelphia voters, as well as voters around the city who care about protecting our communities from the fossil fuel industry. We will have thousands of one-on-one conversations, both at voters’ doors and over the phone, about the upcoming election and why Larry Krasner is the right person for the position of Philadelphia District Attorney. We are excited to contribute to the cross-movement coalition of groups supporting this effort.
