Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The Long Island Environmental Voters Forum is a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots organization created to identify, recruit, endorse and actively campaign for pro-environment candidates for public office.
With policy and program decisions being made exclusively by and for Long Islanders, the Long Island Environmental Voters Forum is uniquely positioned to accomplish this essential task -- one which other groups cannot by law or circumstance, accomplish. Board members are Republicans, Democrats and Independents -- those for whom the environment is more important than party labels.
The Forum will seek out prospective candidates from the ranks of leaders from the environmental community. By focussing on the races where the environment is a critical campaign issue, the Forum can be more selective and can provide a candidate's campaign with much more than a mere endorsement.
The organization will help develop the environment as an issue, educate voters and advocate for the election of environmental champions, even as it advocates for environmental referenda and informs Long Islanders about the essential role the environment plays in determining the Island's quality-of-life.
