At WCV, we win elections and hold elected officials accountable. Our partner organization, Washington Environmental Council, pushes the right environmental policies forward and advances protections for our state. As an advocacy organization, WEC has been driving positive change to solve Washington’s most critical environmental challenges since 1967.

We began our partnership more than 10 years ago, with a simple experiment – hiring a joint lobbyist to increase our presence in Olympia. Since then, it has grown by leaps and bounds with many milestones: the establishment of the Environmental Priorities Coalition, the passage of groundbreaking laws, and mobilizing Washingtonians around the pressing environmental issues of our time.

The connections between our two organizations continue to deepen. While each organization pursues its unique mission, Joan Crooks serves as a shared CEO for WCV and WEC.
