Advocacy and Electoral Work
Elected officials make decisions every day that affect wildlife. The National Wildlife Federation Action Fund works to ensure that those decisions provide solutions to protect, restore, and connect wildlife habitat; transform wildlife conservation; connect all Americans with wildlife, and advance environmental justice. The NWF Action Fund targets important legislation, votes, and elections to help hold elected officials accountable for their positions.
NWF Action Fund has a long history of working with elected officials on both sides of the aisle to promote conservation. We believe that every elected official should represent the conservation ethic, which means supporting those who stand up for people, wildlife, and our climate.
In 2020 and 2021, we supported candidates from state legislative races to the presidential election based on their commitment to our mission. From the Arizona state legislature, to Democrat and Republican members of Congress, to the President of the United States, our candidates stood up for conservation and won.
