Building Grassroots Power

LCV’s community-based organizing programs build a locally rooted and racially inclusive grassroots base of power to advocate for climate action and a stronger democracy.

Community-Led Solutions

To create the momentum necessary to tackle climate change, strengthen our democracy, confront racism, and ensure the long-term health of all communities, LCV and our state affiliates work to build a powerful and inclusive environmental movement. Through our Chispa, Climate Action, and Candidate Academy programs, we connect people to political solutions.

Communities of color and young people are disproportionately affected by environmental pollution and climate change.

Our community-based organizing engages communities of color and young people in innovative, culturally relevant ways that put people at the center of solutions.
We’ve engaged thousands of volunteers and helped secure $2.5 billion in federal funding for electric school buses to clean up the air our children breathe.
We continue to deepen our organizing, art activism, and training programs to build grassroots power to advance long-term democracy and climate goals.

Centering Our Programs on People

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 Voter Movement. This network collaborates to create positive change at all levels of government, from local to state to federal.

Developing Future Leaders

Our country urgently needs more leaders who share our vision of a world with a healthy environment and healthy communities, protected by a just and equitable democracy. To empower more people in our movement to become leaders, LCV and our state affiliates offer robust leadership development opportunities.
