The vision of Washington Conservation Voters (WCV) is that through equitable structures and systems created by statewide, collaborative efforts, everyone in Washington lives in a healthy and just environment, community, and economy. Our mission is to advocate for environmental progress and justice through actions that mobilize the public, elect champions for the environment, and hold our leaders accountable.

To achieve our vision and mission, WCV is committed to dismantling systemic racism and advancing racial equity and environmental justice in all that we do. We work with the understanding that the same beliefs, practices, and systems that create and perpetuate interpersonal and institutional racism, are also those that create and perpetuate environmental destruction. Solving one cannot be done without solving the other. There is no environmental justice without racial justice and economic justice.

About this questionnaire: We thank you for taking time out of your busy campaign schedule to complete this questionnaire. Your responses will be an important factor in our endorsement consideration. No one answer will guarantee an endorsement; instead, all answers will be weighed into our decision making process and all candidates will be considered. Our process includes this questionnaire, a potential interview, and background research on your candidacy, as well as outreach and collaboration with community partners.

Endorsement Directions: Please read the directions below carefully: 

***If you represent a community underrepresented in elected office (Native, Black, POC, women, youth, alter-abled, queer/trans, refugee, etc.) what resources and barriers are you encountering in the course of your campaign? If you would like to connect with us before your endorsement interview on issues specific to you as an under-represented candidate and how we can best communicate with and support you during this endorsement process please reach out (emily@wcvoters.org).

1. Complete the questionnaire; for long form questions, please try to keep your responses to 200 words max. The deadline to submit the questionnaire for General Election endorsement consideration is August 25th. If you think your application should get consideration after this deadline, please contact WCV’s Political Manager, Emily Krieger prior to submitting a questionnaire (emily@wcvoters.org). 

2. Please complete the questionnaire in its entirety. If you are unsure about a question, please contact the WCV team directly. 

3. In addition to submitting the questionnaire, you will have the option to upload a copy of your resume. Once you submit all the required items, we’ll review your submission. We may follow up to ask for your availability for a video interview. Please note that submitting your availability does not mean you are guaranteed an interview or that specific slot; it is to help our team plan logistics. 

4. As our endorsement process proceeds, a member of our staff will contact you to inform you of any next steps.

We continue to degrade and destroy our state's habitats and ecosystems, losing more than 20,000 acres of forest lands across the state each year. Meanwhile, the climate crisis continues to threaten families across the state with more frequent flooding, drought conditions, deadlier wildfires, and pollution that harms our health and well being. No matter your identity, we all face the impacts of this crisis together. 


The decisions we make over the next few years will set the future course for our state, and there is no time to waste. We need elected leaders who are committed to the bold actions that are needed to build a sustainable future for the next generation of Washingtonians.
