Getting ready for 2020 in Massachusetts

October 2, 2019

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.

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.

Huge Victory in Virginia!

November 8, 2017

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.

Last night showed that Americans are rejecting leaders who won't join us to protect our rights, our environment, and our health.

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.

A Millennial's First Political Rally - Providence Women’s March

January 23, 2017

On Saturday, January 21st, I attended my very first political rally - the Providence Women's March. I honestly had no idea what to expect. My friend and I arrived at the South Lawn of the State House an hour early and were relieved to see a throng of pink-clad women and men meandering past tables displaying signs for recognizable social action groups. An hour later, the gathering would manifest itself into a powerful assemblage of people who collectively had a lot to say.

Why We're Supporting Hillary Clinton for President

August 1, 2016

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.
