LCV strongly believes that the long-term health of our planet is inextricably linked with the health of our democracy. Recent Supreme Court decisions have opened the floodgates of political contributions from wealthy special interests and gutted key voter protections. These decisions have amplified the influence of wealthy polluters while making it harder for many people — especially people of color, young people and unmarried women — to participate in elections. A free, fair and equitable political process is essential to advancing protections that are critical to our health, our environment and future generations.
