The Voter Education Program (VEP) builds strategic power for the environmental movement by utilizing data-driven engagement of members, voters, volunteers, grassroots activists, coalition partners, and their members to protect Washington’s environment.

Our grassroots organizers work year round to engage voters on environmental issues, ballot initiatives and elected officials’ positions on issues. We create opportunities to lobby legislators and participate in the policy making process, and focus on a concerted Get Out the Vote effort as each election nears.

Voter Education

During legislative session and election season, the Voter Education Program educates voters on issues and initiatives that impact our communities and environment.

Organizing & Mobilizing

We build power for the environmental movement through our field organizing, grassroots engagement, and internship program, all which empower people to speak up on issues that matter to them, as well as attend hearings and other civic engagement opportunities.

Data Services

Using strategies like list enhancement, targeted voter file lists, green scores, and modeling, WEC builds powerful, cutting-edge tools for our work and our partnerships.

Civic Engagement Testing

We are expanding our community of environmental voters by working to reach and engage the Rising American Electorate and Communities of Color.
