STATEMENT FROM DEMOCRACY FOR AMERICA CEO, YVETTE SIMPSON, ON REP. DEB HAALAND’S CONFIRMATION AS INTERIOR SECRETARY

Deb Haaland epitomizes everything we envision our country to be -- progressive, ecologically conscious, and resilient, with a vision for clean water, clear air, and clean energy. Her leadership is the balm our country needs at this critical time for our environment. 

We rejoice in her appointment and celebrate the history that is being made. As Secretary of the Interior, not only will she make history as the first Native American and first woman of color to hold the position, she will be the guardian that this country so desperately and justly needs, a leader born of 35 generations of indigenous people who are one with the land. This is a win for our country.
