Overview
This renewal grant will support the League of Conservation Voters Education Fund efforts to secure new protections for the West’s public lands and waters. The Fund works to turn environmental values into national, state, and local priorities. This grant will support the Fund’s efforts to encourage the creation of new national monuments, reduce the impact of coal mining on Western public lands, promote the adoption of a permanent source of federal funding for land purchases, and secure strong stream protections under the Clean Water Act. To accomplish these goals, the Fund will educate decision makers in federal agencies and the White House, work closely with other conservation organizations, and communicate to the public through traditional and social media.

This program within the League of Conservation Voters Education Fund aims to deepen engagement with Latino communities on climate and clean energy issues. Latinos are among the worst impacted and least involved in mainstream environmental groups, yet are among the most committed to supporting strong action to curb climate pollution. Through community-based organizing and issue campaigns, Chispa achieves local wins, led by Latino families, that create momentum for strong nationwide action on climate change. Chispa’s work also helps mainstream environmental organizations become more inclusive and diverse so they can better represent all communities in the U.S.
