    Wednesday, September 2, 2020

    Environmentalists are known for their passion. Millions have marched, thousands skipped school in protest and organizations like Sunrise Movement are pushing policy on the US Presidential candidates - but are they actually voting?

    In the 2016 election nearly 10.1million self-described environmentalists did not vote. 10.1 million!

    Citizens' Climate Lobby Guest Speaker: Nathaniel Stinnett

    Saturday, April 11, 2020

    Step one to generate political will for climate solutions is to get people who care about the environment to vote. When Nathaniel Stinnett found out that environmentalists, by and large, were staying home on election day, he saw a problem in need of a solution. That’s why in 2015 he launched the Environmental Voter Project, which identifies environmentalists who don’t vote and reaches out to get them to the polls. On this month’s call, Nathaniel will share some of the ways his organization has successfully activated this important bloc of voters.
