Abraham Lincoln is credited with saying “The best way to predict your future is to create it.”  Democracy enables Americans to create our future when we vote for our representatives on Election Day. Beyond elections, our vote can count every day with how we spend our money and through our actions.

Do you want to make your vote count every dayThe League of Women Voters has led the environmental protection movement for decades, consistently supporting legislation to preserve our nation’s natural resources and protect against public health effects of climate change. Science demonstrates what's best for the Earth is also what's best for you. Now more than ever, the League is working to ensure that the public is educated on issues affecting the climate and the air we breathe, the water we drink and the soil that grows our food.

In support of the League’s effort to respect the environment and address the impacts of climate change, the League of Women Voters of NYS introduces Be Earthwise, our new campaign to engage all Americans from every state to learn the facts, vote with your dollars and vote with your daily actions to preserve our planet.

Stay tuned to vote with your Be Earthwise dollars and Be Earthwise actions on Earth Day, April 22, 2017. Thank you for making democracy work.
