Building lasting political power
EDF Action's Mission
EDF Action, the advocacy partner of the Environmental Defense Fund, builds transformative political power to help protect our environment and the health of American families. We work with a broad range of allies all across the country to combat climate change, reduce pollution and promote sustainable prosperity.
This means educating legislators about new innovative solutions, working across the aisle to build political momentum, mobilizing constituents to advocate for our health and environment, and working to elect pro-environment candidates while holding anti-environment politicians accountable. In addition, we are working to foster the next generation of climate leaders.
All this work will help build a durable and inclusive majority of pro-environment elected officials, which is needed to pass comprehensive climate legislation.
