INTERIOR SECRETARY

DEB HAALAND

Nominated by President Joe Biden​

Congresswoman Deb Haaland is a passionate champion for public lands, Indigenous rights, and action on climate change -- both in the halls of Congress and as an advocate. Her historic nomination to be the first Indigenous cabinet member in history as the next Interior Secretary represents a new day at this crucial department. She has the experience and first-hand knowledge to reorient the Interior Department away from unbridled fossil fuel development and toward listening to communities and science, protecting cherished landscapes, standing up for Indigenous rights, and taking decisive action to tackle the climate crisis. President-elect Biden has made a phenomenal choice. Congresswoman Haaland will implement Biden’s ambitious and bold public lands agenda rooted in environmental justice with the grace, humility, and expertise she has brought to her public service.
