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 to stem climate-related damage, especially for communities that are the most severely threatened.

CHESAPEAKE BAY & CLEAN WATER

The Chesapeake Bay is an integral part of the history and culture of Maryland. Unfortunately, the Chesapeake’s health remains unsatisfactory. Because all Marylanders deserve fishable and swimmable waters, we fight for policies that clean and protect our local rivers, streams and the Bay

COMMUNITY & GOVERNMENT

To fully protect the environment, we need a transparent and open government. We ensure public access and engagement in politics and create informed voters by educating Marylanders on issues and candidates
