Our Climate Movement

Creating a National Conservation Voter Movement

Together, our 29 sister League of Conservation Voters organizations in other states and the national League of Conservation Voters are united in creating the political will to solve the climate crisis. We are focused on electing strong champions who will take bold action on climate, coordinate and align policy campaigns, and build an inclusive and equitable movement.

In 2018, we collectively:

Because of these efforts, seven more states joined the U.S. Climate Alliance, 5 states passed renewable energy portfolios with three more in the works, and for the 1st time in nearly 10 years, climate change is now being debated in the House and the Senate.

Building Local Power with Local Leagues

When it comes to growing environmental champions, we know the journey starts at the local level.

Many of California’s top leaders grew directly from the local leagues themselves, including Anthony Rendon, Speaker of the California Assembly; John A. Perez, former Speaker of the Assembly; Congressmember Salud Carbajal; and Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez, all served on the board of their local League of Conservation Voters.

Local leagues around the state bring an environmental voice to their local races by endorsing candidates, funding campaigns, and building supporter around new leaders and youth engagement. Each local league has a distinct local presence and impact, and we are committed to expanding our reach in the Central Valley and Inland Empire areas.
