Holding Leaders Accountable

NC League of Conservation Voters (NCLCV) is the state’s leading pragmatic, nonpartisan political voice for protecting our state’s environment. 

North Carolinians, from the mountains to the sea, share a belief in protecting our air and water, maintaining the health of our communities, and ensuring our quality of life. Our elected officials have not always prioritized these values. That’s why our work is critical.

We are Forming a Green Caucus

We are forming a Green Caucus in the General Assembly to protect people — instead of polluters. The caucus will work together to advance clean energy and fight climate change.  They will advance efforts to keep us safe from toxic pollutants like GenX, coal ash, and hog waste.

The Green Caucus is one of NCLCV’s many initiatives to advocate for North Carolina’s environment.
