Environment America Voter Action
The voice of your state environmental group -- and others throughout the country -- in the election process.
Supporting elected officials who fight for a better environment
Protecting the environment is a 24-7-365 (366 in presidential election years) job.
Most of that time, that means doing basic research of problems and solutions, informing our neighbors, lobbying legislators and bureaucrats, and taking polluters to court.
And sometimes, it means helping elect government officials who will do the right thing without having to be prompted... and defeating politicians who will toss away the quality of our environment without a moment’s hesitation.
Environment America Voter Action exists to do that part of the job
We’re the voice in national, state, and local elections of people like you: members of the state environmental groups which are part of the Environment America network.
We support candidates -- regardless of party affiliation -- who do more than talk the environmental talk. Because we see them in action before they get on the ballot, we know which candidates will do the right thing on the not-so-easy votes... and which will cave to polluter pressure.
And we focus on the tough races, the ones where victory will wrest control of a government from climate deniers, the ones where defeat will roll back decades of progress.
