“Erin and I are both on the same side of one of the most crucial issues of our time: protecting our environment,” Chrysta said. “We must find a way to meet our energy needs without making this planet uninhabitable for our children and grandchildren, and I know we can do it. That’s why I’m fighting so hard to earn Texans’ vote in this critical election. My race for the Railroad Commission has been called the most important climate election in the nation, and I’m so pleased Erin is supporting me in this effort.”

Erin is a consumer advocate and environmental activist who was instrumental in building a case against the Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) of California in 1993. Her successful lawsuit was the subject of a 2000 film, Erin Brockovich, starring Julia Roberts. Her recently published book, "Superman's Not Coming: Our National Water Crisis and What We the People Can Do About It," is available at booksellers.

The host committee for the event includes Earth X, Sierra Club Political Action Committee, Anne Marie Painter, Matt Gallagher, Cheryl Pudwill, Brandon Benson, Jeff Tillotson, David Stallwitz, and Mike Lynn. Also speaking at the event is The Honorable Garry Mauro, Former Texas Land Commissioner.
