Take Action: Get involved and help us protect our oceans!  Join now

Electoral Support

In 2019-2020 our electoral work is more important than ever. There are currently 73 champions serving in the 116th Congress and while they’re doing great work, the anti-environmental tone of the broader Congress shows that they need more help. As the only ocean group to engage politically, we intend to deliver that help by working to elect more champions in 2020! We’ll defend our existing champions and will identify, evaluate and support the best new ocean candidates. Sign up for our email list to keep up to date as we roll out endorsements, and watch our website, Facebook and Twitter pages for more details.

Ocean Champions mission is to build the political power necessary to ensure thriving oceans and coasts. Our approach is to participate fully in the political process using a full complement of electoral and legislative tools to support endorsed champions and defeat bad candidates, including but not limited to PAC giving, advertising, polling, education, voter ID and “get out the vote” campaigns.

Consistent and Growing Electoral Success

Our focus will be on:

  • Defeating ocean enemies
  • Ensuring that our current congressional champions return to Congress to continue their good work for ocean conservation
  • Identifying, evaluating and helping elect new candidates and members worthy of the Ocean Champions endorsement
  • Strengthening Ocean Champions Political Action Committee (PAC). Every penny raised for this powerful organization goes directly to pro-ocean candidate campaigns – the bigger the PAC gets, the more champions we can help win.

Note: To give to Ocean Champions PAC, you must first join Ocean Champions.
Please take this step today to help deliver a pro-ocean Congress tomorrow.
