Debbie Mucarsel-Powell is running to represent Florida in the U.S. Senate. She is a former U.S. Representative, serving Florida’s 26th Congressional District for one term. While in the House,  she served on the House Transportation & Infrastructure Water Resources & Environment Subcommittee. She was “a leading freshman voice on environmental issues, especially water policy,” according to E&E News, introduced legislation to protect coral reefs and secured $200 million in annual funding for restoration of the Everglades. 

Mucarsel-Powell made history as the first Ecuadorian-American and first immigrant from South America elected to Congress. Before serving in the U.S. House, she worked for several non-profit organizations, including the Hope Center, Zoo Miami Foundation, and the Coral Restoration Foundation. She also worked at the College of Health at Florida International University, helping improve health care access for Floridians. South Florida is ground zero for climate change impacts, including sea level rise. If elected to the Senate, she will continue to fight clean air and water, protect Florida’s Everglades, and reduce carbon pollution by investing in clean energy.  Mucarsel-Powell is endorsed by LCV Action Fund.
