Sharice Davids is committed to expanding wind power to generate clean energy and new jobs in Kansas, where she is a member of the Ho-Chunk Nation.
Davids is an attorney who has worked with Native American tribes on economic development. She was a White House Fellow during the Obama-Trump transition. Previously, she was a professional mixed martial arts fighter.
As a representative, Davids will focus on investment in clean energy infrastructure and protecting our air and water. She will support tax policies that promote clean energy and will fight against reductions to the Clean Water and Air Acts. She is the one of the first Native American women elected to Congress and is the first openly LGBTQ member to represent Kansas.
Davids joins the U.S. House after defeating Representative Kevin Yoder, who was named to LCV’s House Dirty Dozen and earned a 3% lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard.
In her own words:
“Protecting our environment and natural resources is necessary for both our planet and our economy. In Kansas, we are uniquely positioned to capitalize on renewable energy to create good-paying jobs while growing our clean energy economy.”
