‘Army Of Environmental Super Voters’ Is Growing, Marching On City Hall

"Exclusive: The Environmental Voter Project is expanding its effort to mobilize inactive green voters to five more states, bringing its total operation to 17 states."

"Nathaniel Stinnett launched the Environmental Voter Project in 2015 to resolve a simple but enormously important contradiction. Polls found a vast majority of Americans understood climate change and wanted the government to act. And while millions of those people were registered to vote, many never cast ballots.

Since then, his nonpartisan group has contacted nearly 6.2 million voters in a dozen states who rank environmental issues as a top concern, but rarely, if ever, vote. The group estimates that they’ve been able to convert just over 733,000 of those people into regular voters in the last five years.

Now the Massachusetts-based nonprofit is expanding into another five states: Alaska, Texas, Kansas, Iowa and New York."
