PHILADELPHIA, PA – The list of groups supporting Larry Krasner’s campaign for District Attorney was joined today by environmental advocacy organization Food & Water Action Fund, the political advocacy organization supporting the educational work of Food & Water Watch.
“Philadelphians need a District Attorney who will protect our community from environmental criminals, and Larry Krasner is the candidate to do that job,” said Sam Bernhardt, Senior Pennsylvania Organizer for Food & Water Action Fund in a press release. “The movement to resist the regressive Trump administration must begin close to home."
“Under Trump, enforcement by the EPA and federal prosecutors will likely disappear,“ said Krasner. “It will be essential for local prosecutors to vigorously prosecute pollution when the fed refuses to do its duty. I will work to prioritize attainable goals, including finding personnel and funding a new unit to pick up where the EPA and federal prosecutors leave off.
Larry Krasner's campaign has won endorsements from AFSCME 1199C, Liberty City LGBT Democratic Club, Philly for Change, Pennsylvania Working Families Party, Pennsylvania Federation Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employees (BMWED) - IBT, B.L.O.C. (Build, Lead, Organize, Campaign),Reclaim Philadelphia, and 215 People’s Alliance.
