We have to Build a world where people and nature thrive!
A planet where forests flourish, oceans are full of life and where once-threatened animals safely roam. Where our quality of life is measured in relationships, not things we have or own.
Our goal is to ensure the ability of the earth to nurture life in all its diversity: protect biodiversity in all its forms, our of is measured, prevent pollution of land, air and water, promote quality forestation and protect wildlife.
Our fight to save the planet and its people has grown more and more serious. Devastating impacts of climate change, destruction of ancient forests and the deterioration of our rivers continue to loom large.

In many ways, we’re in the fight of our lives. The inequitable system is the same one that landed us in a climate and extinction crisis.
Our members across the country are fighting for our climate and our communities, and abuse of the earth’s ocean, land, air and fresh water. We’ve been campaigning for a green and peaceful future for 20 years, and we’re not stopping now.
It’s time to rise up like never before and fight for our climate and communities.
