The National Caucus of Environmental Legislators is the only environmental organization founded by legislators for legislators. Our legislator members come to NCEL because they want to be armed with the best information possible to advance new environmental initiatives and to defend against attacks on existing environmental safeguards.
Our commitment is to provide NCEL members with up to date science, connect decision makers with experts on environmental issues and to provide a means for environmentally progressive state legislatures to communicate across state lines on the trends occurring in legislatures across the country.
Your gift to NCEL will make a difference in providing these resources to state legislatures. Here are a few examples of what your gift will allow us to do.
By making a monthly donation of $10, you will provide NCEL with the resources to send our monthly Conservation Briefing to a network of over 950 state legislators and key staff.
A donation of $250 will allow NCEL to host a webinar on a key environmental issue impacting the states. NCEL periodically provides issue briefings on topics of interest to legislators giving legislators the opportunity to learn directly from experts.
A donation of $500 will allow NCEL to host an issue expert at one of our annual policy workshops held in the Chesapeake Bay, Great Lakes, Mississippi River Basin, and Pacific Northwest. These experts are available to answer questions legislators have on different policies and issues impacting their region.
A donation of $1000 will allow NCEL to conduct a site visit to a state that is not currently a participant in one of NCELâ€™s regional projects. By traveling to the states NCEL is able to reconnect with our existing members and identify new participants who by being exposed to NCEL programs become more effective advocates for the environment.
