LCV scores votes on the most important issues of the year, including energy, global warming, public health, public lands and wildlife conservation, and spending for environmental programs. The Scorecard is the nationally accepted yardstick used to rate members of Congress on environmental, public health, and energy issues.
In August 2015, in response to President Obama’s unveiling of the Clean Power Plan — which sets the first-ever national limits on carbon pollution from power plants — LCV and Chispa, its grassroots organizing programs, launched two simultaneous media campaigns in three states, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico, to encourage Latinos to tell their governors to support the Clean Power Plan and invest in clean energy.
League of Conservation Voters and Chispa are active in the coalition GreenLatinos:
GreenLatinos is a national nonprofit organization that convenes a broad coalition of Latino leaders committed to addressing national, regional, and local environmental, natural resources, and conservation issues that significantly affect the health and welfare of the Latino community in the United States.
