We have less than a decade to get climate change under control. Even though the majority of registered voters believe our leaders need to do more on climate action, they’re not doing enough. With your help, that changes in this election.
Campaigns only target likely voters because campaigns have limited time and money they typically only communicate with people who are most likely to vote. As a result, campaigns only poll likely voters to see what issues they care about. Unfortunately, nearly 16 million environmentalists did not vote in 2014 pushing climate change and environmentalism low on the list of likely voters’ issues. In partnership with the Environmental Voter Project, we’ll turn that around by turning out environmentalists and centering climate justice in on our leaders’ agendas.
Combat voter suppression.
Those most impacted by the climate crisis have had the least to do with the problem. Specifically, Black, Indigenous, and communities of color (BIPOC) have been the hardest hit by climate disasters and fossil fuel extraction. These very same communities are also facing targeted voter suppression efforts. In order to protect our democracy and planet, we must fight for every eligible voter’s right to vote. We’ll do this by rapid response campaigning whenever an election official puts up a roadblock and by recruiting hundreds of in-person Election Day volunteers to help our fellow Americans navigate the election process without obstruction.
Protect the Vote
If you agree that every eligible voter deserves to have their voice count, you can take action from home or in person by serving as a nonpartisan Election Protection volunteer. We are signing up social media monitors to combat disinformation and in select states on the ground Election Day poll monitors
