Year after year, election after election, clean water voters make a difference in local, state and national elections by showing up at the polls and voting for candidates who are putting the priorities of our communities first and who are working to protect clean water and act on climate. We did that in 2018 with excellent results in the US House. We need to do that again in 2020.

On Monday October 28th Clean Water Action will award Gary Steinberg the Annual David Zwick Memorial Award in recognition of Gary’s decades of work for social justice and environmental protection.  This very fitting given Gary’s long term relationship with David. Together they built the Clean Water Action from the days it was known as the Fishermen’s Clean Water Action Project.

The 2019 elections present a huge opportunity to flip the Virginia House of Delegates to pro-environment leaders who will help advance clean water priorities during the Virginia General Assembly legislative session in 2020.

Every vote for the environment matters.
