Throughout his career, Ed has refused to compromise his progressive values in his fight to build a Commonwealth and country that are fair, just, and equitable for all. He has never been afraid to disrupt the status quo, and for the last six years in the United States Senate, Ed has been leading and delivering on the issues that matter the most to the people of Massachusetts.
Ed is a leader in environmental sustainability. He is a member of the Environment and Public Works Committee, the Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee, and the Foreign Relations Committee. He is also Chair of the Senate Climate Task Force. These key positions, combined with his more than 40 years of legislative experience, make him a powerful influence in moving both national and international communities towards a sustainable climate.
Most notably, Ed is the Senate co-author of the Green New Deal with Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 10-year mobilization to transform our economy and democracy, all while addressing climate change. It calls for a massive investment in 100 percent clean, renewable, zero-emitting energy; green transportation; and climate-resilient infrastructure, supporting the creation of millions of new jobs.
