Clean and Prosperous America
Learn why individuals and organizations across the nation are supporting Clean and Prosperous America as we promote environmental solutions to the climate and the economy. CaPA is actively collaborating with these large, strategically important, organizations as part of our effort to get the young voters more civically engaged in 2020 and environmental policies adopted in 2021.
“The team at Clean and Prosperous America understands just how important it is to engage young people in our electoral process. That’s why they invested the time and resources in doing the critical long-term research needed and built a youth grassroots grant program to be sure the most innovative on-the-ground groups have the resources to mobilize hard-to-reach young voters. This work, all driven by a pro-climate lens, could make a huge difference in some of the closest races across the country and help move the climate change debate forward even faster.” — Joe Bonfiglio, EDF Action Fund President.
“Our friends at Clean and Prosperous America (CaPA) have been integral in helping us expand our youth climate and democracy program at scale, empowering us to reach tens of thousands of additional underrepresented youth voters in the places where they could cast the deciding ballots this fall. Their unique approach that blends climate advocacy, democracy, and evidenced-based strategic communications tactics is aligned and complementary to our approach and has positioned our organization to maximize our resources across many different proven tactics in this unique moment of racial reckoning, an unprecedented global pandemic, and the exhausting fight to uphold our democracy. We are deeply grateful for the innovative approach, fresh perspective, and collaborative community that CaPA has provided.” — Leah Qusba, ACE Executive Director.
“By collaborating with the Clean and Prosperous America team, we’re able to grow the number of young North Carolinians we can reach in this critical election year. With so much on the line, CaPA’s focus on some of the voters who are least likely to hear from campaigns, young rural Americans, could be the margin of victory for so many important elections — from the White House to the statehouse. NextGen’s efforts to turn out the youth vote in North Carolina are much stronger now that we’ve teamed up with CaPA” — Ben Wessel, NextGen America Executive Director
“CaPA’s findings have been confirmed by others doing research, including the Biden-Harris campaign,” says Rosenberg. “That campaign has leaned very heavily into selling its ambitious climate agenda as one which will create good jobs in the coming years.” — Simon Rosenberg, NDN and New Policy Institute President.
“Rural Democracy Initiative is excited to provide a grant to CaPA to advance youth civic engagement in rural parts of our country. CaPA’s identification of youth-focused grassroots efforts in non-urban areas, as well as the research they are producing both closely align with RDI’s mission.” — Sarah Jaynes, Rural Democracy Initiative Director.
