We are a state-wide, nonpartisan organization that uses political action and education to protect our air, land, water and communities. We are the leading legislative watchdog in Annapolis, advocating for smart and effective environmental policies and holding elected officials accountable for their votes through our scorecards. We work to get people elected that are committed to improving Maryland’s environment. Maryland LCV has been a part of nearly every major state environmental policy accomplishment since our founding in 1979.
WHY WE DO IT
Nothing is more important than protecting the air we breathe, the water we drink and the land on which we live. And currently, the climate crisis is a significant threat to the environment and our welfare. Environmental issues are too often minimized or marginalized. We are working to ensure a healthy future for Maryland’s communities, neighborhoods, and families.
HOW WE DO IT
We endorse and work to elect pro-conservation candidates. Once elected, we hold them accountable through our annual scorecards and report cards. We advocate for smart and effective environmental policies that benefit Maryland families and communities. Our record of success has made us the trusted voice for the environment in Maryland’s political landscape.
