A strong advocate for low-income communities and communities of color disproportionately impacted by pollution, Anton will take his experience fighting to increase investment in clean energy and keep our air and water clean to Harrisburg.
PA General Assembly: Protecting the Environmental Voices
An influx this session of 49 new legislators, including a record number of women and 31 new environmental champions brought fresh and critical voices to environmental fights.
