The battle to save our environment will never be won unless the public is informed and empowered to fight for a sustainable and just society. Until then, “Wise Use” groups will pursue their misinformation campaigns, and our environmental laws will continue to be threatened by short-sighted politicians and government officials who pander to special interests. We therefore support a wide variety of groups committed to bringing about long-term, ecologically conscious, social and political change by engaging citizens in environmental campaigns.
