About Us

The mission of EOPA: 

To create a safe, prosperous, and healthy planet, we empower leadership from elected officials and civic leaders to protect our environment and fight the climate crisis. As a national network of current and former elected officials, led by military veterans, EOPA educates through value-based storytelling, policy training, and exchanging ideas that connect elected officials and inspire strong environmental policies that;

  • Foster and promote policies that combat climate change, including the transitions to 100% clean energy systems that strengthen our economic resiliency and enhance national security. 
  • Protect and conserve public lands and waterways — to prevent further development, limit oil and mineral extraction, protect watersheds and groundwater, and keep the land vibrant for future generations.
  • Fight environmental and racial injustice for all peoples.

Our programs are led by lawmakers who are veterans and elected officials who represent frontline communities. We support policy at the local, state, and federal levels and operate in every state.
