Welcome to MLEV

Our Mission

MLEV is a statewide, non-partisan organization dedicated to making environmental protection a top priority for Massachusetts elected officials, candidates and voters in order to better protect our environment and health.

The Massachusetts League of Environmental Voters is the state affiliate of the League of Conservation Voters.

Overview

We hold legislators accountable for their votes on environmental issues. The political process is essential to protecting our environment and health. Who we choose to represent us in an elected position can make all the difference for the health of our environment. That’s why MLEV works to elect leaders who will protect natural environments, our health, open spaces, and quality of life.

We work to educate voters about the importance of environmental issues, so they can make their voices heard with legislators. We educate voters on the environmental actions so they may advocate effectively their legislators and make informed decisions when it comes time to vote. Additionally, we educate about the candidates that we have endorsed. MLEV offers volunteer opportunities to meet and to assist legislators and endorsed candidates for office. Join in the endeavors of the MA League of Environmental Voters for a greener Massachusetts.

$14 for ’14- Candidates Corner

$14 for ’14 is our campaign to target fourteen legislative races to elect candidates who possess the kind of environmental ethic that you do. We are already off to fast start, having endorsed three candidates this spring!
