  • Why We Lobby

    The impacts of climate change on the places we love—our communities, trails, mountains and waterways— are greater than ever. Changing the trajectory of climate change will take smarts. It will take guts. And it will take passion. POW Action Fund is committed to advocating for a healthy climate through clean energy policies and public lands legislation, which is crucial for addressing these urgent impacts. Our efforts focus on forming relationships with key decision-makers nationwide to ensure our priorities are on their agenda.

    The end result? We help passionate outdoor people protect the places they live and the experiences they love from the effects of climate change.

    “Lobbying is like making new friends as an adult—a little scary at first but if you go in with an open mind you’re bound to find points of overlap and connection….But as many POW Alliance members know, a mountain is only unclimbable until someone is brave enough to try summiting. Lobbying helped all of us in the meeting better understand how similar our values and goals really are and start to think about how to use that alignment to shape a tomorrow that is just a little better than today. We left with a new friend and are looking forward to getting to know them more over the next few years.”

    “It’s really important to use these medals that we’re carrying around to make sure that we get in the door – that we get in front of people who are able to vote on these huge policies that impact all of us.”
