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. Built on decades of organizing experience, Environment America Action Fund has played a vital role in independent field efforts, running sophisticated door-to-door field operations for pro-environment candidates on the local, state and national levels.

Environment America Action Fund approaches electoral politics in the same way Environment America approaches its advocacy work:  with our sights trained on achieving the most protection for our environment.

Since 2008, Environment America Action Fund, in coordination with its partner groups, has knocked on over 5 million doors across 16 states and held over 2 million conversations with voters.

Our work in 2018

Environment America Action Fund will seize the uniqueness of this political moment to support candidates who will stand up for the environment.  We will do that by running our own independent expenditure programs that reach voters face to face at their door steps, in their mail boxes, and in the digital space.  We will also support the efforts of other like-minded organizations.

Our track record

Built on decades of organizing experience, Environment America Action Fund has played a vital role in independent efforts over the past decade. We coordinate closely with America Votes at the national and state level and have forged strong relationships with organizations like LCV Victory Fund, Fair Share Action, and Priorities USA Action to better magnify our collective impact on Election Day and beyond.

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.

Environment America Action Fund went door-to-door in 2016 in the always crucial swing states of Pennsylvania and North Carolina, delivering big wins for pro-environment candidates. This was particularly true for now-Governor Roy Cooper, who North Carolinians elected by an unprecedented, slim margin of only %0.2. We trust that our field teams, who knocked on over 87,000 doors across the state in support of his candidacy, made an important difference."
