Ellison Daily, Part 2 - What the Sierra Club Wants You to Know About Keith

Dear Friend,

They just keep on coming! Today the environmental powerhouses Sierra Club North Star Chapter and Clean Water Action, some of the strongest advocates for clear air, water, and soil in Minnesota, strongly endorsed Keith Ellison for Congress.

Why? Because here’s what they know about Keith, and what they want you to know:

Keith has “intelligence, commitment, passion and skill in addressing environmental issues and building alliances to broaden the movement.”

“In his role as a key founder of Environmental Justice Advocates of Minnesota and as a legislator, Keith has worked to address environmental health concerns such as mercury, lead and pesticide pollution and to move our state away from carbon-based fuels toward renewable energy. And he has done so while bearing in mind the critical links between environmental quality and economic development.”

“All these aspects of Keith’s record tell us that he won’t just vote right on environmental issues, but will champion the environment in Congress.”

“Keith’s commitment to environmental justice and economic justice make him far and away the best choice for Congress. And the voters in the 5th District deserve nothing less.”

We welcome the Sierra Club and Clean Water Action, their members and grassroots activists, to the extraordinary coalition Keith’s campaign has built of people of all colors, all faiths, all neighborhoods, and all passions for justice. Our combined efforts will make our progressive future a reality with Keith’s victory on Tuesday, September 12.

Let’s keep building on this incredible momentum! In the NEXT 12 DAYS we can easily do one (or more!) of the things below:

1) Tuesday, September 12 – TAKE ELECTION DAY OFF!
We will need all hands on deck for Election Day, Tuesday, September 12. Please plan to take the whole day off, or as much of it as you possibly can, to contact our voters and make sure they vote!

2) Saturday, September 9, and Sunday, September 10 – GET OUT THE VOTE!
We will be doorknocking, lit-dropping, and calling throughout the entire district. Bring your family and friends, and join loads of other folks like you who believe passionately in a truly fair, equal, and just country. It’s going to be a lot of fun!

3) Every day – contacting fellow progressive voters
Every single day between now and Election Day, we are calling and doorknocking voters to share our passion about Keith and his bold, unapologetic message. You can do this at just about any time of day, and we’ll make it easy for you.

To volunteer your time and effort, call Trayshana at the Keith Ellison campaign at 612-722-5233, or email her at or
