CCAH is proud to work with the League of Conservation Voters (LCV), an organization that fights for the environment, making it a political priority. They focus on “meaningful action to combat climate change,” fighting to maintain the safeguards we have already established as well as championing new laws and protections to further support our future.
CCAH was honored to attend the League of Conservation Voters’ Capital Dinner at the Hyatt Regency in DC this past Wednesday as they celebrated a year of unprecedented victories on behalf of our earth — even as they fought against unparalleled opposition to environmental action. The speeches from LCV leaders, such as Gene Karpinski and Carol Browner, and environmental champions, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Representative Joe Neguse (D-CO), made the night a true celebration of environmental victories, as well as a reminder of the need to keep fighting. As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi highlighted in her address, LCV has been “the driving charge” in defending our environment for
the last 49 years.
Despite their tireless work and that of other advocates for the protection of our environment, there is still much work to be done – particularly in the face of the current political administration. Optimism shone through when considering the milestones that have already been accomplished, but this feeling was dovetailed with urgency and the need for greater and more drastic changes to prevent impending, irrevocable climate catastrophes. Environmental stewards were recognized and awarded, and dinner was environmentally friendly and locally sourced, perfectly complementing the night’s theme.
CCAH recognizes that it is only through constant and dedicated work from all of us that we will achieve a lasting and beneficial impact. We are proud to be able to support such an important organization as they approach their 50th year supporting environmental action. With lights the color of PMS 7725 and LCV’s new logo all around, the night was a beautiful tribute to all they have accomplished this past year, and an important reminder that Our Earth Is Worth Fighting For.
