Manka Dhingra is running for the open seat in the 45th legislative district in Washington State. This seat is a critical win to flip the balance of the State Senate to pro-environment, opening the door to legislative action on climate in the legislature.  Although this district has historically been a swing district, last year Hillary Clinton won in the 45th legislative district by 65%.  Dhingra is a prosecutor, PTSA mom, and anti-domestic violence advocate and community leader. Dhingra has a strong commitment to environmental protection from her background in public health and education, and believes that all kids deserve a healthy environment.  Dhingra has been endorsed by Washington Conservation Voters.
