Our Mission

We believe that voting is the most important thing you can do for the environment!

North Carolina has a number of environmental advocacy organizations working to fight climate change by advocating for stronger, more equitable environmental policies and protections for our communities. And some of us work to hold our decision-makers accountable at the ballot box and elect candidates to our State Legislature and other offices that will put climate, the environment, environmental justice, and democracy first.

To prevent the worst impacts of the climate crisis, we need leaders at all levels of government that will prioritize our public health, invest in a just transition to a clean energy economy, advance equitable solutions for our most impacted communities, and protect our environment. This website aggregates the endorsements of leading environmental organizations in the state in order to help voters identify which candidates on their ballot will lead on environmental issues and protect our democracy– so we can elect leaders who share our values.

Each organizations’ endorsement process is different and not every candidate applies for every endorsement, but we hope our combined efforts can raise critical climate issues in every campaign and highlight candidates that will fight to protect our air, land, and water.
