Maryland League of Conservation Voters  works on these critical areas of concern. We work during the Maryland General Assembly legislative session to pass strong environmental policy. We also work throughout the year to advance environmental policies at the local and state levels.

CLIMATE CRISIS

The science is clear: the climate is changing. With over 3,000 miles of shoreline, Maryland is especially vulnerable to the effects of rising sea levels and temperatures. We are focused on getting candidates elected that will work tirelessly to address the climate crisis. We will also work to advance policies that will stem the impacts of the climate crisis, especially on communities that are unduly burdened by the impacts.

CLEAN WATER & CHESAPEAKE BAY

The Chesapeake Bay is an integral part of the history and culture of Maryland.  Unfortunately, the health of the Chesapeake is far from where it should be. All Marylanders deserve fishable and swimmable waters in our local rivers, streams, and the Chesapeake Bay. We advocate for policies that clean and protect Maryland’s rivers, streams and the Chesapeake Bay.

COMMUNITY & GOVERNMENT

To fully protect the environment, we need a transparent and open government. We work to ensure public access and engagement in politics, we educate Marylanders on issues and candidates so they can be informed voters.
