Canning’s candidacy has already been endorsed by the leading climate groups her district: 350 Eugene Climate Emergency PAC, Sunrise Movement Corvallis and Sustainable Energy and Economy Network. This is her first national endorsement, and will increase the national profile of her race. As 350 Action explains, “For our top candidates, we’ll do everything in our power to get them elected. From registering voters, to creative storytelling to knocking on doors to get out the vote, we will work hard to see our champions take their seats in office.”


Canning has spent her 20 year career in community organizing, standing with communities to protect the climate and fight for environmental justice. She is also a graduate of the University of Oregon School of Law’s top tier environmental program, where she delivered a TedX talk on her vision for the Green New Deal


“Here in southwest Oregon we have world class offshore wind potential, and some of the most important forests on the planet for carbon storage. When I serve in Congress, I will fight everyday to ensure we are leading the nation on solutions like renewable energy and regenerative forestry and creating quality jobs while cooling our planet. The future for my kids, and all future generations, is at stake. ” 

Canning is running on a bold climate platform that includes a ban on fracking, liability for major fossil fuel companies for climate damages, and a Green New Deal package that delivers family-wage jobs to Oregon. The high profile 350-Action endorsement comes as Canning continues to call on Oregon’s elected leaders and candidates to take a stand with her against the proposed Jordan Cove fracked gas pipeline and LNG export terminal in Coos Bay, which observers say could be approved by the Trump Administration in early 2020, and would be the largest climate polluter in Oregon.  


Doyle Canning will be speaking at Friday’s Climate Strike Rally on the Oregon State University campus from 12-1 PM at the Memorial Union, sponsored by Sunrise Movement Corvallis.
