What We Do

During Maine’s legislative session, our team advocates and submits legislation that supports our mission and values: addressing the climate crisis, protecting our lands and waters, ensuring democratic institutions, and advancing environmental justice. We depend on grassroots engagement and support; everyone can be an advocate and should be active in the process. Our team will help you build the experience that you need to be an effective citizen-advocate, and we’ll have fun doing it! Join our efforts by becoming a Legislative Team member.
