Building Power In The States

Our 30+ state affiliate organizations build power in the states to fight for clean energy, climate action, and a stronger democracy. These state affiliates and our national organization together form the Conservation Voters Movement. This network closely collaborates and shares expertise and resources in order to create positive change at all levels of government, from local to state to federal. Visit the websites of our affiliates to learn more about local efforts near you.

“The power of the Conservation Voters Movement – of this network of over 30 state organizations and a national organization – is that the sum of our parts is greater than the whole. Collectively, our network is at the forefront of advocating for climate action, environmental safeguards, and a stronger democracy – from the state house to the White House. We’re collaborating together at all levels of government to fight for cleaner air, safer water, and a more just and equitable future for all.”

Lisa Wozniak

Executive Director, Michigan League of Conservation Voters

“The absolute devastation wrought by Hurricane Ian is a profound and sad example that the climate crisis is here. We are truly living in a climate emergency; however, Floridians cannot adapt our way out of this problem. We need state leaders to prioritize a just transition away from dirty fossil fuels and foster the clean energy future we deserve. Nothing less than the future livability of our state is at stake.”

Bethzaida Olivera

Climate And Clean Energy Policy Advocate, Florida Conservation Voters

“We can’t wait: Georgia needs a just transition to clean, affordable energy that will leave our state better for generations to come. While our work at the Capitol is far from easy, it’s clear that there’s bipartisan support for removing barriers to renewable energy. I was proud to work alongside Georgia Conservation Voters this session on bills that would create jobs, protect Georgians from unfair utility charges, and allow low-income residents the opportunity to benefit from rooftop solar. I look forward to getting back to work on these important issues next year!”
