“At a time when we need elected leaders, on all legislative levels, to be responding to the climate crisis, we instead get deniers and fossil fuel cronies. This is why we’re endorsing candidates like… [Cristina Tzintzún] Ramirez, who not only advocate for climate justice in their own communities but support a Green New Deal that would transition us into the 100% renewable economy. They see fossil fuel companies for the threat they are — and they’re prepared to do something about it.”Natalie Mebane, Policy Director, 350 Action
“Cristina Tzintzun Ramirez is a bold, fearless and pioneering leader who realized early on the untapped potential of Latinos to help lead and transform Texas through civic engagement. Her organizing spirit continues to inspire the members and staff of Jolt Action, where we took on her torch after she stepped down to run for office, to realize our ambitious and critical goals such as ensuring every Texan is counted in the census and holding leaders at all levels accountable to the needs and issues confronting the Latino community. We must stand up and help Cristina Tzintzun Ramirez go to Washington to fight for the policies that represent the best interests of all Texans.”Antonio Arellano, Interim Executive Director of Jolt
The Action PAC
Above all else, our courageous candidates are men and women who have a fierce love for their home states and will strive to represent all people. They understand the true threats to our democracy, our safety, and our prosperity and have bold ideas to push our country to live up to its full potential. They also understand the urgency of this moment and are going to fight to win their election like all of our lives depend on it. Now it’s up to us to support them.The Action PAC
“Heading into the 2020 elections, political observers have regularly identified Cornyn as one of the Senate’s most vulnerable incumbents, quickly marking this race as a frontline in the battle to win back a democratic majority in the Senate. Cristina, having picked up many of Beto O’Rourke’s former top strategists from his near-miss campaign against Ted Cruz, is well positioned to build off the momentum from the high-water mark his campaign set in 2016 and deliver Texas its first democratic Senator in nearly 30 years.”PODER PAC
