Mobilizing voters to power a clean economy
Check out the four pillars of CaPA’s work
We believe that stubborn adherence to old technologies and fossil fuels is accelerating climate change and restricting economic growth. With the right leadership at local and national levels, we know it’s possible to achieve net-zero carbon emissions while building a healthy and sustainable economy. Clean & Prosperous America is mobilizing voters to power a clean economy.
Nothing is more effective at mobilizing voters than personal outreach from trusted community members. That’s why we prioritize supporting grassroots organizations to do direct voter engagement work in strategically-targeted districts.

“CaPA’s support has enabled NCAAT to support youth-led organizing activities from phone and text banks that have mobilized 21,860 young people to vote to social media outreach and campaigns that have generated 9,800 engagements. CaPA’s support has enabled us to provide an enriching experience for interns and youth networks this year.”
Tucson Climate Jubilee
“CAPA’s grant support, both monetarily and through messaging resources, crucially assisted Tucson Climate Jubilee in understanding motivating messaging for young people in Arizona, and subsequently activating suburban, rural, and indigenous youth voters through text messaging campaigns and direct mutual aid. CAPA’s support also helped our members understand direct contact tools and learn more about the data collection process.”
“Because of CaPA funding, Forward Montana hired a team of six organizers who assisted in calling and texting over 70,000 young Montanans. This addition of a Get Out The Vote team was a “first” for our organization and allowed us to expand our reach to every county in Montana.”
Piedmont Environmental Alliance
“CaPA’s support was instrumental to Piedmont Environmental Alliance’s new voter education and mobilization programs this year and helped lay the groundwork for our strategic expansion into the advocacy realm. We also learned from the other CaPA grant recipients and CaPA staff about creative, new tactics to mobilize voters and action.”
Inter Tribal Council of Arizona
“CaPA’s support allowed ITCA to conduct trainings and webinars for tribal youth councils across Arizona that provided the knowledge and skills to conduct civic engagement efforts in their communities. With these webinars, tribal youth councils have additional tools to help them organize campaigns specific to their communities.”
“CaPA’s grant added additional capacity to our existing programs by enabling us to expand the number of hours our student organizers were working in key demographics. Specifically, it allowed us to offer unlimited working hours to our student organizers during Get Out The Vote. This enabled them to participate in both election protection programs, and Get Out The Vote “chase” programs.”
We work with Vote.org to provide our partners with high quality voter participation tools.
