What We Do
NC Common Agenda
NCLCVF understands that in order to achieve success, you have to work together. This is why we play a key role in facilitating and advocating for the NC Common Agenda: Priorities for the Environment.
The Common Agenda represents the environmental legislative priorities that have been agreed upon by a network of environmental groups in the state, informed by NCLCV’s electoral expertise. While each group may have particular issues they focus on – energy, water, or transportation for example – during the Common Agenda process we come together to select our common legislative priorities, and NCLCV lobbies on these joint priorities as our primary legislative agenda. This kind of focus and collaboration is a powerful tool in influencing legislative outcomes, and will help us to begin to regularly set a more pro-active environmental agenda for the state.
The Common Agenda is supported by a growing alliance of environmental organizations across the state. 2011 marks the fifth year that participating groups have set forth a shared list of priorities. While the Common Agenda represents a set of shared priorities, there will always be other critical environmental issues being considered by the General Assembly, and represented by these and other environmental organizations.
