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.
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.
On Tuesday, November 7, the people of Virginia led the way and voted for clean water, climate action and the environment, and voted against the Trump Administration’s anti-science agenda.
Through the support of clean water voters like you, Ralph Northam won the race for governor and Kathleen Murphy won her reelection to the House of Delegates. This is a huge victory for our environment, our water and our communities.

An hour later, the gathering would manifest itself into a powerful assemblage of people who collectively had a lot to say.
There are more than 500,000 town, city, county, and local municipal elected positions across the nation; more than 10,000 statewide positions; more than 7,300 state legislative seats; 435 members of the US House of Representatives; 100 US senators; 1 vice-president; 1 president.
Simple. Hillary is a longtime environmental champion who will fight for us. Donald Trump would be a disaster.
The choice hasn't been this clear in a long time.
Vote on April 26th for candidates who will protect our environment!
In a campaign cycle dominated by presidential politics, I wanted to bring your attention to a few great environmental candidates in Pennsylvania who received our endorsement in the Democratic Primary: Josh Shapiro for Pennsylvania Attorney General; Steve Santarsiero for Congress, District 8; Marty Molloy for State Senate, District 9; and Ed Gainey for State House, District 24.
