Citizens Campaign for the Environment (CCE) was formed in 1985 by a small group of concerned citizens who recognized the need to provide public involvement to advance stronger environmental policy. Today, after 25 years as a not-for-profit, non-partisan advocacy organization, CCE has grown to an 80,000-member organization with offices in Farmingdale, NY, White Plains, NY, Albany, NY, Syracuse, NY, Buffalo, NY, and Hamden, CT. CCE continues to work to empower the public by providing members with opportunities to participate in the political process and thereby advance a strong environmental agenda.
Our Campaign staff educates New Yorkers about current legislation having to do with the environment. Our staffers organize individuals and communities in a way that maximizes their combined voices to effect state and federal legislation having to do with public health and the environment. Currently we are working on the issue of hydro-fracking as well as improving water quality around the state.
