Hakeem Jeffries

Hakeem Jeffries is running for Congress, District 8

Hakeem Jeffries is an incumbent running for re-election to represent New York’s 8th Congressional district. During his stay as congressperson, he has sponsored and cosponsored ecologically minded bills. Those bills touched upon topics such as requiring the Dept. of Interior to use the funds to carry out a grant program for conservation efforts, setting requirements to reduce production of plastics act, and increased efforts to collect, recycle, compost, providing funding for water infrastructure, providing funds to native tribes to assist in payment for drinking water, among others. Jeffries does not accept contributions from PACs of executives from oil, gas, or mining companies or affiliated trade associations, and this ensures the autonomy to fight for environmentally conscious legislation.
