About Us

The NRDC Action Fund’s mission is to build political support for advancing the goals of the Natural Resources Defense Council:

Averting dangerous climate change, supporting healthy people and thriving communities, and conserving and protecting nature and wildlife. We support candidates who stand up for these goals, and we mobilize the American public to lobby lawmakers and hold them accountable for their votes, both in office and at the ballot box.
