As 2023 winds to a close, we are reflecting on a year of historic wins for Michigan's communities and environment. Powered by advocates like you, good policies are gaining support. Increasingly, leaders have come around to our shared ideals to protect the air we breathe, water we drink, and places we love.
- We won a long-fought battle to protect children from lead poisoning. Every one- and two-year-old child in the state will now be tested for lead poisoning. Every school and community center will be outfitted with drinking water filters to protect kids from lead and PFAS.
- Michigan’s fight against climate change took a huge leap forward. In early November, the Michigan legislature passed a comprehensive climate change package that will ensure we have 100% carbon-free energy by 2040.
- The Environmental Council grew to 100 members. We spent the year building meaningful connections with even more ECOs - environmental and conservation organizations - across the Mitten, building our membership to 100 organizations all working collaboratively to fight for the change you believe in.
With the collective strength of our members, allies, and supportive decision-makers, we can achieve even greater victories. But we need your help. A donation is an investment in the environment. It sustains the work of our team and empowers us to make an even greater impact. With your support, more historic changes can come.
