Every day, the North Carolina Conservation Network advocates for a healthier environment, an open government and a better state. With recent changes in North Carolina's politics, NCCN sought a way to fight the powers-that-be with their 10-Year Action Plan. I worked with BC/DC Ideas on the design and illustration of this publication.

 YET HERE WE ARE.
I
n just the last two years, conservative leaders in the North Carolina General Assembly havepaved the way or racking, made our state a laughing stock as we shunned climate science,and passed multiple bills that allow industry to legally pollute our air and water. But sadly,it’s going to get worse beore it gets better.
So how did we get here?
 Anti-environmental elected ocials now control every branch o stategovernment, including a Governor who campaigned against environmental protection and aveto-proo majority in both the North Carolina House and Senate.
What does this mean? 
In short, the environment is losing. We’ve already lost long-standingprotections and anti-environment legislators continue to introduce some devastating practicesto North Carolina, like racking or natural gas and intentionally not considering scienticinormation regarding sea level rise. And, when the environment loses, we all lose.
How do we get out of this mess? 
Tis shit took place over a ew years and it will take a ewyears to get back on track. We need to start turning this around now. We also need to make surewe don’t lose all the progress and protections we’ve won over the past ew decades.NC Conservation Network has developed this 10-year action guide or where we want to goand how we will get there. We will ght the day-to-day ghts while we build or a better NorthCarolina in the uture. Here’s how we’ll do it:
Ӱ
Grow, grow, grow.
We want to continue to grow our grassroots base – not just next year, but or thenext 10 years.
Ӱ
Go local.
We are unlikely to win anything meaningul at the state level or the next ew years.However, we can win locally. We’ll work with our aliates to win environmental protections at the city and county levels.
 
Ӱ
 Make the environment a top issue for North Carolinians.
We want the environment to be on theshort list o issues that North Carolina citizens believe are important and need action. Tis includesmore media coverage as well as putting orward other voices – such as business leaders and publichealth experts – to carry our message.
 
Ӱ
 Find new leaders.
We need more individuals who are willing to take leadership positions in local andstate government. Our plan is to identiy emerging leaders in our activist and aliate networks andhelp them move into leadership roles in their communities.
With the support o our donors, activists, and aliates, we can turn things around. ogether,we can ensure North Carolina’s environment is protected. Your support has been a critical parto our success over many years and will be more important than ever in the years ahead.
Read on for our action steps that will lead us back to the North Carolina weknow and love.
IT
S NOT YOUR NORTHCAROLINA, EITHER.
