CLF’s supporters are our greatest and most powerful asset. Because of you, we were able to achieve important victories in New England and beyond. This past year, we fought for and secured new regulations to ensure a sustainable groundfish fishery, led the region in advocating for transportation solutions and made concrete progress towards improving water quality across the region. Thank you for making all of this (and so much more) possible.
At CLF, our advocates are already gearing up for a busy and productive new year. And today, I invite you to boost CLF’s impact in 2011 by making a tax-deductible gift to our most crucial work.
In 2011, CLF will:
- Address the proposed billion-dollar Northern Pass project, which would transmit 1,200 megawatts of hydro-generated power from Quebec. The proposal stands to dramatically re-shape the energy landscape throughout New England. CLF will be closely evaluating this project and taking actions necessary to ensure that it proceeds in an environmentally responsible way and results in significant reductions of greenhouse gas pollution.
- Continue our work promoting sustainable ocean management, resulting in healthy fishing communities, protection of areas of particular biodiversity and a promising source of renewable energy. CLF has made real progress in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts, and now we need to consolidate and expand that progress to all of New England’s oceans.
- Bring legal and community pressure on water polluters across the region, whether that pollution is caused by excess nutrients, stormwater or industrial sites. From reducing pollution from wastewater treatment facilities to promoting solutions for New England’s watersheds, CLF has the strength and persistence to protect our shared environment.
2010 was CLF’s most productive year to date. But let’s raise the bar and do even better in 2011. We’re going to need your support to accomplish our ambitious agenda. Please make a tax-deductible contribution today to maximize our impact in 2011.
Amidst the rush of the holiday season, thank you in advance for taking the time to protect your New England.
