Welcome to the West Central Chapter

Recent name change to DECF of Pinellas as other chapters form in the region.

We are strengthening our impact by establishing important working relationships with other caucuses, environmental and civic groups, and elected officials. Some of these groups include Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council, Pinellas County Commissioners, St Petersburg City Council, Tampa Bay Estuary Program, Sierra Club, and St. Petersburg Sustainability Council.

We have a strong Political Action Committee, which interviews and endorses candidates, as well as develops strategies for getting them elected. We work to bring about legislation, which is favorable to the environment. We partner with the Florida Progressives to develop and update the environmental portion of the spreadsheet, Progressive Priority Legislation.
