Accountability is the backstop for advocacy work.
Voting is one of the most important things you can do for the environment.
Accountability is the backstop for advocacy work. It means not only knowing the score but electing people to office who care about our issues, and will ultimately earn better scores.
The Conservation Political Action Committee (CPAC) works to educate, engage, and mobilize citizens and candidates on behalf of the environment. NCLCV’s Conservation PAC uses the power of endorsements and political activities to close the loop on the cycle of accountability. Our goal is to build an environmental majority at the State Legislature so that we can effectively turn your environmental values into North Carolina policies.
We work directly in elections to endorse and elect candidates for state office who will prioritize the issues we care about – our North Carolina landscapes, our quality of life, and the health of our communities.
Visit the Conservation PAC website to find out who we are endorsing.
While we know that all elections – local to federal – are critical, our focus remains on the state legislature and other statewide offices. Visit the Conservation PAC website to find out who we are endorsing.
But in every election cycle, you should find out where your local candidates stand on issues affecting our environment. Attend candidate forums, ask questions, visit their campaign websites. Get them on the record for their positions on clean air, safe water, land conservation, holding polluters accountable, better transit options…and then hold them accountable for making better environmental decisions!
