Re: LCV GreenRoots and Green Wave 2020 Member Mobilization Programs Update
LCV’s GreenRoots member-mobilization program and Green Wave 2020 partnership is focused on helping elect and re-elect 51 LCVAF-endorsed candidates, including Joe Biden & Kamala Harris, 11 U.S. Senate candidates and 39 U.S. House candidates.
Through LCV’s GreenRoots program that launched early last month with a $1.3 million investment we have deployed 75 organizers to mobilize LCV members for critical races in 15 key states: AZ, CA, CO, FL, GA, IA, ME, MI, MT, NC, NH, NV, PA, VA, and WI.
Members have been calling, texting and participating in online events with campaigns in order to support 51 LCVAF-endorsed candidates, including Joe Biden & Kamala Harris, 11 U.S. Senate candidates and 39 U.S. House candidates. Additionally, we have partnered with Vote Forward to increase civic participation by organizing our members to send letters to voters. In the last week alone we’ve almost doubled the number of members getting engaged and the number of shifts completed. Despite organizing limitations due to the global health pandemic, our members are fired up and doing everything they can to elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, flip the Senate, and grow the pro-environment House majority.
Now, as our organizers begin to transition into Get Out The Vote efforts, I wanted to share some of the highlights from the past month and a half:
Throughout the program, we have engaged our members in many exciting events including the following:

Green Wave 2020
LCV has partnered with four other major national environmental groups, EDF Action, NRDC Action Fund, NWF Action Fund, and the Sierra Club, to mobilize our members through Green Wave 2020. The collaboration is designed to mobilize our members to help elect pro environment candidates across 15 states. We’re focused on building a deeper majority in the House and winning a pro-environment majority in the senate, and–after four grueling years–a climate action champion in the White House.
