We've been working to improve San Francisco's environment since 1980.
The San Francisco League of Conservation Voters is where the environmental movement meets local politics.
Our mission is to promote environmental protection through active participation in the San Francisco political system and to enhance the integrity of that political system for all San Franciscans.
As such, we promote conservation and protection of natural resources, environmental justice, and sustainability, as well as good government issues and political reforms.
Our primary means for achieving these goals are:
- Supporting legislation and candidates that promote our goals.
- Informing the voting public about such legislation and candidates.
- Lobbying public officials on behalf of such legislation.
- Creating such legislation itself.
Formed in 1980, the San Francisco League of Conservation Voters, has worked for years promoting environmental issues in San Francisco such as, but not limited to, the following:
- We've worked to improve public transit in San Francisco, supporting MUNI, BART, and Caltrain as well as working to elect political officials who prioritize public transit.
- We've worked to protect and restore the Bay as well as carefully choose Bay-side development projects.
- We've worked to protect & enhance San Francisco's public spaces, including parks, natural areas, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and the Presidio National Park.
- We've worked to improve San Francisco for pedestrians and bicyclists to encourage people to drive less.
- We've worked to improve San Francisco's waste stream by promoting composting and recycling as well as other forms of waste management.
