Giving Tuesday: Power our efforts for bold climate action

For nearly 50 years, CLCV has been on the frontlines of the fight to protect our environment.

Thanks to the Trump Administration, our fight is getting tougher by the day. Every day, we are fighting the Administration’s attacks on our environment including the gutting of clean water standards, selling our public lands to Big Oil and Big Gas, and rolling back over 50 environmental protections that we have fought decades to establish.

What’s worse is that we only have 10 years to act on the climate crisis before it worsens beyond repair. The actions of the Trump Administration and their friends in the fossil fuel industry are shortening the clock.

This year, we were able to pass critical environmental, climate, and public health legislation to protect Californians. It was no small feat, and we couldn’t have done this without our members, allies, donors, and supporters, like you.

Every time we stand up and fight back, it takes resources: people, time, and money. Every fight is fueled and funded by our fearless CLCV members – and that’s what inspires me to keep fighting. That’s why I’m asking for your support again today.

To make sure we are prepared to win, CLCV is launching CLCV’s Climate Action Fund to support our agenda for 2020, including:

We need your support to change the political landscape and make transformative climate action possible. Will you help us grow our movement by making a donation to CLCV today?

We are not in ordinary times. The welfare of our communities, way of life, and our planet are on the line. The only way to protect our future is to take bold action now. That requires increased and adequate funding to match our adversaries and empower our environmental champions.

We cannot afford to allow the oil industry to get a stronger grip on our precious public lands, nature, and wildlife, as they carry out their dangerous drilling and fracking plans.

CLCV represents a community who cares about clean air, clean water, and outdoor spaces and we hope to secure your ongoing participation today by providing a special gift.

We cannot do this work without you. We need you now more than ever to power our movement to fight off the Trump Administration and its Big Oil friends.

Together, we can take the bold action necessary to address this crisis and protect our future.

Thank you for standing with us.
