In early 2016 I was out with some colleagues and one of them said, “We elected Reagan twice, Trump could win.” I chuckled and said “OK, boomer” to myself.

Welp...

Climate Champions Win Big in Rhode Island Primary Election

September 15, 2020

The Rhode Island General Assembly looks to be getting a bit greener after last week’s elections.

This past Tuesday, September 8th, Rhode Island held our statewide primary election. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this election looked a bit different than in past years. Usually, we know who the winners are by the end of the night or early the next morning but this year, we had to wait a few days. So we spent a few days biting our nails and constantly refreshing the Board of Elections results page. But it was worth the wait.

2019 Clean Water Virginia Candidate Endorsements

September 19, 2019

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. More than ever we need pro-environment candidates elected to office to stand up to the Trump administration and EPA administrator Wheeler’s attacks on key water protections. Every vote for the environment matters.

Much more than just knocking on doors!

February 24, 2017

Clean Water Action works hard to keep people involved in the democratic process, even outside of election day. Contrary to popular belief, politicians are not working against the interest of the people. They just have a lot on their plates.
