We need leaders who will fight for a better environment

Environment America Action Fund works to protect our environment and the places that make America great. Our commitment to clean air, clean water, clean energy and the conservation of America’s treasured places helps ensure our families’ health, the quality of our lives and the values we share.

Environment America Action Fund was created to counter the power of the unchecked contributions made by corporate polluters and their allies in the political process. Using targeted grassroots organizing and strategic communications, we work to help elect candidates who will stand up for the environment, and to defeat politicians who place corporate profits ahead of environmental protection. The tactics we use promote democracy by educating the public and getting people involved.

Our track record

Built on decades of organizing experience, Environment America Action Fund has played a vital role in independent progressive field efforts. In numerous elections we have ramped up sophisticated door-to-door electoral field operations for pro-environment candidates on the local, state and national levels.

Since 2008, the Environment America network of organizations has run campaign offices in sixteen states – from California to Virginia to Massachusetts. To ensure our message reaches the maximum number of target voters and penetrates through all the noise in people’s busy lives, we often layer targeted mail, television and online communications on top of our targeted door program. 

In 2012, Environment America Action Fund ran a national field operation to help President Obama win a second term and to bring environmental champs to the U.S. House and Senate. Focusing in 10 states, EAAF helped win in 13 of the 14 federal races where we invested our field resources by knocking on nearly a half million doors in the month leading up to Election Day. Our efforts helped turn out the voters needed to elect Senate champions such as Tim Kaine and Martin Heinrich as well as vulnerable U.S. House members including Ami Bera and Scott Peters in CA.  

Looking forward to 2016 & beyond 

Environment America Action Fund is looking forward to putting our boots on the ground in 2016 and beyond to ensure we have pro-environment decision makers at all levels of government working with us to create a cleaner, greener, healthier country.
