 Join a Canvass for Climate with Jennifer Christie, 5th Congressional District Candidate

Christie is Running for the 5th Congressional District Seat on a Platform of Progressive Causes, Leading with Solving the Climate Crisis

 (INDIANAPOLIS, IN) – Jennifer Christie, candidate for the 5th Congressional District, is hosting a “Canvass for Climate” at her Zionsville campaign office on Saturday, January 25th beginning at 11:00 AM. Christie has centered her campaign around the issue of climate change and is looking to encourage more people in her district to get involved in solving the greatest challenge of our time. Her people-driven campaign has dedicated itself to elect a candidate to Congress who will put the issue of climate front and center in her agenda on Capitol Hill.

At the Climate Canvass, Christie will sign a pledge to support Citizens’ Climate Lobby’s Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act (H.R. 763), which will reduce America’s emissions by at least 40% in the first 12 years as part of her larger climate agenda, which can be found on her website jenniferforindiana.com. She will also sign an endorsement of the Green New Deal, which she fully supports and plans to push if elected.

After a short ceremony in which Christie will sign the above, volunteers will be given information and instructions before being sent out to talk with voters in the neighborhood around the campaign office.

Jennifer is running a campaign entirely dependent on the people – not the corporations – and on a platform of climate action, single-payer healthcare, women’s rights, passage of the Equality Act, a $15 minimum wage, workers’ rights, gun reform, redistricting reform, and more.

5th Congressional District Jennifer Christie Speaks Out on Iran

Christie is Running for the 5th Congressional District Seat on a Platform of Progressive Causes, Leading with Addressing the Climate Crisis

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) – Iran has now sought retaliation for the assassination of Qassim Suleimani by attacking U.S. military and coalition forces in Iraq. While there is no question that Suleimani was an enemy of America and our allies, the fact that President Trump did not alert our Congressional leaders nor our allies before taking this instigative action is deeply disturbing and irresponsible. The American People expect our leaders to be nonpartisan and responsible when it comes to acts of war. Our Constitution grants authority to Congress, not the President, to declare war.

A quote from Christie on January 7th:

“In this moment, Congress must take back the Constitutional power to make decisions about war on behalf of the People. In this moment, we must show leadership by deescalating the rising tensions between Iran and the USA. It’s time to be the adult in the room. In the middle of his impeachment, Trump assassinated Suleimani and we have yet to hear detailed or compelling reasons for his decision to act without consulting Congress nor our allies. An endless war with Iran is not in the interest of the people of America, Iran, nor of the world. It is time for cool heads and forward thinking.”

Jennifer is running a campaign entirely dependent on the people – not the corporations – and on a platform of climate action, single-payer healthcare, women’s rights, passage of the Equality Act, a $15 minimum wage, workers’ rights, gun reform, redistricting reform, and more.
