Our Strategy

Elect state and local leaders who will act on climate, advance environmental justice, and defend democracy.

  • 2023-2024

    Elect Green Governors

    Governors play a critical role in passing and implementing bold, just climate solutions. This cycle, we’re fighting to elect climate champions who will continue the progress Governors Jay Inslee (WA) and Roy Cooper (NC) made during their terms.

  • 2023-2024

    Protect Democracy

    Elect pro-democracy State Supreme Court Justices and Secretaries of State who will ensure voting rights, protect the ballot box, and uphold election integrity.

  • 2023-2024

    Flip and Defend Critical Legislative Chambers

    Protect pro-climate majorities in states that have made critical climate gains and flip anti-climate majorities in state legislatures.

Choosing Governors, state executives and downballot candidates who will champion climate policy has never been a higher priority. These leaders will play a role in the implementation of the Inflation Reduction Act, passing historic climate legislation at the state and local level, and making sure gains in the states that were made in the last few years are not turned back.

How we choose these priorities

  • We prioritize competitive races and help elect state and local candidates who will act on climate, advance environmental justice, and protect democracy.

  • We evaluate each candidate's voting record on environmental and pro-democracy policies. That way, you know you’re supporting a candidate who shares your values.

  • We evaluate a candidate’s chance of winning—so you can invest in races where your contributions will have the biggest impact.

  • We prioritize diversity and believe supporting candidates of color, women, and LGBTQIA+ candidates is integral to addressing the climate crisis and its direct impact on systematically marginalized communities.
