About LCV

LCV works to turn environmental values into national, state and local priorities. LCV, in collaboration with our state LCV partners, advocates for sound environmental laws and policies, holds elected officials accountable for their votes and actions, and elects pro-environment candidates who will champion our priority issues.

Educating the Public about Important Environmental Legislation

LCV works to educate the public, lobby Congress and the administration, build coalitions, promote grassroots power, and train the next generation of environmental leaders as part of our grassroots efforts. LCV's National Environmental Scorecard provides objective, factual information about the most important environmental legislation considered and the corresponding voting records of all members. The Scorecard represents the consensus of experts from about 20 respected environmental and conservation organizations who select the key votes on which members of Congress should be scored. LCV scores votes on the most important issues each year, including energy, global warming, public health, public lands and wildlife conservation, and spending for environmental programs.

Electing Pro-Environment Leaders to Congress

LCV runs tough and effective campaigns to defeat anti-environment candidates, and support those leaders who stand up for a clean, healthy future for America. Our track record demonstrates our ability to use the democratic process to improve the environment.

  • Since 1996, 60 percent of the candidates named to the Dirty Dozen have been defeated.
  • In 2010, LCV (and our connected political committees, LCV Action Fund and LCV Victory Fund) spent $5.5 million on independent expenditure campaigns.
  • LCV Action Fund's GiveGreen program raised more than $1 million for pro-environment candidates in 2010.
