Contest Every Race Partnership

In 2019, LCV launched a partnership with Contest Every Race to recruit LCV members to run for office via text in rural parts of the US, including in municipal utility races and utility co-op elections that are typically sleepy affairs. 

Because of our commitment to transitioning to clean energy, we see these races – and the candidates who run for them – as critical opportunities to advance a clean energy agenda. This partnership expands our capacity to be involved in more races and to help build pro-environmental majorities in unlikely places, and to deepen our relationships with other organizations that do candidate recruitment and training all over the country.
