NYLCV PAC is the only state political action committee dedicated to electing environmental and clean-energy leaders.Funds raised at the event will go directly toward NYLCV PAC's efforts to elect environmental and clean-energy leaders to the state Legislature.

And talk about an auspicious start to the election season -- we exceeded our fundraising goal!
