The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) is the nation's most effective environmental action organization. We use law, science and the support of 3.1 million members and online activists to protect the planet's wildlife and wild places and to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all living things. NRDC was founded in 1970 and our staff helped write some of America's bedrock environmental laws, including the Clean Water Act, and many of the implementing regulations; our water enforcement cases played a major role shaping current water policy throughout the country. Today, our staff of more than 500 lawyers, scientists, economists, policy and communications experts, and others, work out of offices in New York, Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Bozeman, Montana and Beijing.

The NRDC Action Fund is NRDC’s 501(c4) affiliate. The NRDC Action Fund’s mission is to build political support in the United States for protecting the planet and its people. In addition to its lobbying and other advocacy work, the NRDC Action Fund also supports candidates who stand up for environmental protection and holds accountable those who side with polluters rather than the public good.
