350 Philly and the Pennsylvania Sierra Club have joined the growing list of grassroots groups to endorse Working Families Party candidate for Philadelphia City Council at large Kendra Brooks. 350 Philly is a volunteer-led, campaign-focused initiative connecting and organizing a strong grassroots coalition to address climate change and build a just and secure future beyond fossil fuels.

“350 Philly is excited to endorse Kendra Brooks for City Council,” said Mitch Chanin, 350 Philly Steering Committee member. “Kendra is a champion for environmental and economic justice, with a bold platform and an incredible track record as an organizer and coalition builder. Philly needs Kendra in City Council to bring about a Green New Deal.”

“Brooks understands the importance of bringing many voices to the table as we plan the transition to clean, sustainable energy,” said Jim Wylie, chair of Sierra Club’s Southeastern Pennsylvania Group. “She has demonstrated her collaborative approach through her involvement in the work to remove lead and asbestos from public schools. She will bring another strong voice to city council to address our environmental issues and challenges.”
