About CLCV

Who We Are

The California League of Conservation Voters (CLCV) is the non-partisan political action arm of California's environmental movement.

What We Do

The CLCV mission is to protect and enhance the environment and the health of all California communities by electing environmental champions, advancing critical priorities, and holding policymakers accountable.

How We Do It

Voter Education: At the end of each legislative year, CLCV publishes the California Environmental Scorecard. The Scorecard is the definitive barometer of environmental politics in Sacramento, rating the performance of the California Legislature and the governor on key environmental legislation. Published annually for more than four decades, the Scorecard is distributed online and to 30,000 CLCV members, other environmental organizations, and the news media.

Electoral Campaigns: CLCV conducts rigorous research on candidates in order to make endorsements in key races. Our endorsements are backed with expertise, and we assist candidates with the media, fundraising, and grassroots organizing strategies they need to win. We also campaign to educate voters about candidates' environmental records.

Legislative Advocacy: CLCV is a legislative watchdog. Each year, we campaign for strong environmental legislation in Sacramento. We collaborate with other organizations on legislation of importance to the greater environmental community. We maintain a full time lobbying presence in Sacramento and work to make sure legislators hear from environmental voters.

Local League Chapters: Electing good environmental leaders to state and federal offices often begins at the local level. CLCV works with existing local League organizations, and helps build new ones throughout the state to foster strong elections at the local level.
