2020 GCV Candidate Questionnaire
On behalf of the Board of Directors and members of the Georgia of Conservation Voters, thank you for taking the time to fill out the 2019-2020 GCV Candidate Questionnaire. The Georgia Conservation Voters (GCV) Action Fund is Georgia’s political voice for the environment. We are a statewide organization that strives to be non-partisan and are dedicated to holding elected officials accountable for their actions and votes on climate and environmental issues.
GCV and its partners in the environmental policy arena believe that the environment will be a high priority issue for voters of both parties in 2020. Candidate's positions on issues such as protecting public health, building a clean energy future, and addressing dangerous climate change will help voters decide how to cast their ballots this election cycle. With the Trump Administration and a U.S. Senate led by climate change deniers, it is more critical than ever that candidates down-ballot stand up for our bedrock environmental values and support climate action.
Climate change and other threats to clean air, clean water, and public health are not niche issues that happen in a vacuum—our social structures impact how these problems manifest and who bear the greatest burdens. Unfortunately, because of racism, inequality, and injustice, low-income and communities of color disproportionately shoulder these burdens. As we devise and implement the short- and long-term climate solutions needed for our collective survival, it is imperative that we address these disparities. GCV Action Fund believes that in doing so, we have the opportunity to also deliver tremendous environmental, social, economic, and community benefits equitably to all people in our state. We expect that the candidates we support will share our commitment to racial justice and equity.
The information you provide in this questionnaire will help us assess the viability of your campaign as well as your support for the environment. GCV Action Fund will also consider questionnaire responses, past environmental records, and candidate viability in making endorsement decisions. Candidates will not be endorsed by GCV Action Fund without satisfactory completion of the questionnaire.
