Type of Support
This grant would continue support for the New Venture Fund’s Center for Western Priorities, a West-wide communications effort to change the media’s portrayal of the debate over oil and gas development on public lands. The Center builds relationships with reporters, draws from the best polling to craft persuasive messages, rapidly responds to attacks on public land protections, steadily generates reports and news, and enlists a broad array of westerners as spokespeople. The Center also works closely with conservation organizations across the West to fill gaps in communications capacities.
