Climate Action–
Focus on Climate Advocacy

​and Legislation


LWVE backs state and national League of Women Voters climate action priorities.


General Climate Advocacy
Citizens’ Greener Evanston works to make Evanston a more environmentally just, sustainable, and resilient community. Our vision is to have Evanston recognized as one of the most environmentally sustainable cities in the country.

The Illinois Climate and Equitable Jobs Act passed on September 13, 2021 and was signed by Governor Pritzker. The bill puts Illinois on a path to achieve 100% clean power generation by 2050. It puts the state on a path toward a green energy future while also protecting consumers, jobs and promoting equitable energy policy.

Citizens’ Climate Lobby is a non-profit, nonpartisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change. The group trains and supports volunteers to build relationships with elected officials, the media and their local community to generate the political will necessary for passage of the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act.

The Environmental Voter Project aims to significantly increase voter demand for environmental leadership by identifying inactive environmentalists and then turning them into consistent activists and voters.
