350 Action on Thomas Perez becoming DNC Chair

Washington, DC — Today, the Democratic National Committee elected Thomas Perez as the new DNC Chair over Rep. Keith Ellison. In response, 350 Action Executive Director May Boeve issued the following statement:

“Ellison lost the vote today, but the values his campaign represented will endure — from putting communities first to resisting corporate capture of our democracy. We will continue pushing the party to be stronger on climate change and to center grassroots voices in the transition to the renewable energy economy we need. The resistance is stronger than ever, and we’re not going away.”
