Wow! Help us register thousands of people to vote!

Help us mobilize the green vote!

Great news.  An Earth Day Network supporter has just offered us a $25,000 matching grant tohelp us register thousands of new voters and make sure their voices are heard in November.

For more than a decade, Earth Day Network has partnered with African American and Latino organizations to register and turn out environmentally conscious voters. This year, we are working in 7 states to rally voters to the polls from communities that have been hardest hit by environmental disasters. And we aren’t leaving after the elections.  EDN and our partners are committed to working with community partners for 3 solid years to make sure that local roots of this campaign grow deep and strong.

A generous donor has committed $25,000 to this campaign IF WE CAN MATCH this DONATION this week! We need YOUR help to reach our goal. 

Over the past decade, this coalition has worked together to register nearly 1 million low-income, ethnically diverse voters.  Help us bring thousands of new voters to the polls and into the environmental movement.

Please help us reach our goal and contribute to Campaign for Communities today!
