We empower New Yorkers to make environmental change by engaging them in the civic process. That includes registering voters, helping residents make their voices heard on environmental issues, and connecting New Yorkers with candidates, elected officials and policy makers.

Become an Corporate Partner

With climate change and the greening of businesses making headlines every day, more corporations are partnering with environmental groups to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability and to connect with conservation-minded consumers and decision-makers.

Our Issues

New York State faces a wide range of sustainability challenges that differ from region to region. Jointly with NYLCV, the NYLCV Education Fund issues policy agendas that lay out specific legislative and budgetary remedies tailored to different levels of government or regions of the state. They serve as practical blueprints to help guide elected officials, policymakers, political candidates, voters and the general public toward a more sustainable future.
