Cast your vote to help the National Wildlife Federation bring YOUR voice to the table.

It doesn’t really need saying that America is home to many diverse communities.  We’re a KitchenAid mixer, or a salad bowl, or a fondue pot, or [insert your favorite cooking metaphor here]. As we gear up this year to help pass one of the most important policies of our time, it’s important that every leader of America’s many diverse communities can get a seat at the table.

You might have seen the videos and photos we’ve collected from groups of conservation supporters and wildlife advocates who’ve traveled to Washington DC this year. These groups have been advocating for Congress to pass strong climate legislation in 2009 that caps global warming pollution, safeguards wildlife and restores our natural world.

With 46 state affiliates and eight regional offices, NWF is in a great position to bring even more citizens to DC from every area of the country and every walk of life. We’re all in this together, and each and every one of us has something important to contribute to the plan to cap global warming pollution.

Currently, NWF is in the running to win a grant that would help expand our efforts to enable members of diverse communities to enact strong legislation that curbs global warming and improves the quality of life for people and wildlife across America .

So please tell your friends and family to join you in casting your vote for NWF at justmeans.com.  And if you’re feeling doubly inspired, please support NWF’s efforts to cut carbon emissions in schools around the country.
