The mission of the CCAN Action Fund is to effect change in public policy at local, state and national levels to directly address the threat of global warming. Through voter education, lobbying and participation in the electoral process, we seek to move our country into a leadership position on the most urgent global issue of our time — the climate crisis. Together with our sister organization, the Chesapeake Climate Action Network (CCAN), we focus most of our efforts in the Chesapeake Bay states of Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. We believe positive solutions exist and must be embraced now to preserve our planet for future generations. We also know that a vibrant democracy is central to our success and we work to defend democratic integrity wherever we can.
