About us

Building lasting political power

We find new allies to work with us to protect our world every day. With your help, we are building an influential and inclusive environmental majority.
Bird flying over water

EDF Action is the advocacy partner of Environmental Defense Fund. With a dedicated team of lobbyists, political strategists and communications professionals, we build strong, bipartisan support for transformative environmental protections. By cultivating unlikely political support and mobilizing an army of concerned citizens, we work toward revitalizing our fragile wetlands, keeping toxic chemicals out of our homes and bodies and delivering climate change solutions big and small.

Wherever environmental rules or legislation are being developed – in the chambers of Congress, the offices of government, or in the state legislatures – EDF Action is there.

As a separate entity from Environmental Defense Fund, EDF Action accepts only nondeductible donations. That lets us focus 100 percent of our efforts advocating for the policies that make our communities cleaner, healthier, and more prosperous, conserving the best of America for our kids and grandkids.
