The Boundary Waters Action Fund endorses the following candidates in the 2020 election

Minnesota Congressional Districts:

“These candidates agree with the nearly 70% of Minnesotans who want permanent protections for the Boundary Waters, and if elected, they’ll work to protect this Wilderness from the threat of sulfide-ore copper mining." “They know that protecting the Boundary Waters from sulfide-ore copper mining is not only the right thing to do but also a winning political issue. We look forward to supporting them in their races and encouraging Minnesotans to make their voices heard at the ballot box this November.”
