Green Tie Awards 2020

When legislators score well, we like to recognize them for their work to protect North Carolinians. We usually do that every May at our annual Green Tie Awards, which honor environmental champions who have stepped up and spoken out on our issues at the General Assembly and in the public. But this year, the pandemic forced us to put on our first ever virtual Green Tie event on October 7. We were honored to have Sen. Cory Booker, Gov. Cooper, Cal Cunningham, and other special guests join us to honor our awardees. Click here to check out videos from the event and find out who we honored!
