Tulsi is a lifelong environmentalist who started an environmental non-profit as a teenager, and has a proven record of defending our air, land, and water.

Tulsi has been endorsed by the Sierra Club, League of Conservation Voters, and Ocean Champions, among others. Tulsi has consistently voted against the keystone pipeline and other forms of environmentally-damaging energy and has voted for efforts to combat climate change, support clean energy, and in other ways protect our fragile environment. That’s why the League of Conservation voters has given Tulsi a “lifetime” pro-environment score of 97% and a score of 100% in 2015.

  • Honored with the “Friend of the National Parks” award from the National Parks Conservation Association for her support of the National Park System.
  • Cosponsored HR 4811 (114th), the Coral Reef Sustainability Through Innovation Act of 2016, that would allow federal agencies to award grants to efforts that promote coral reef research and conservation.
  • Cosponsored H.Res. 540 (114th), a resolution expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that the policies of the US should support a number of green energy policies, including: a transition to near zero greenhouse gas emissions, 100% clean renewable energy, infrastructure modernization, green jobs, affording energy, and for avoiding adverse impacts of a changing climate.

We are pleased to endorse Tulsi Gabbard. She’s been a solid champion for Hawai’i families’ health, air, food and water as the Congressional District 2 Representative.

Since entering the House, Tulsi Gabbard has been steadfast in rebutting calls to build the Keystone XL pipeline. She’s instead used her leadership platform to advocate for increasing America’s renewable energy supply. She’s also a strong champion for organic agriculture and GMO labeling.
