MISSION STATEMENT

The Democratic Environmental Caucus of Florida (DECF) strives to support Florida lawmakers, candidates, legislation and businesses that preserve, protect and enhance Florida’s natural resources. The DECF concerns may include but are not limited to Florida’s air quality, shorelines and coasts, aquifers, waterways, wet lands, wildlife, remaining natural areas and publicly owned wild lands and parks.

The DECF intends to:

  • Help elect Democratic candidates who endorse suitable action on critical environmental issues.
  • Provide party members and the general public credible data relating to environmentally sensitive issues as informed opinion, legislative alerts and technical/science expertise.
  • Monitor local and state legislation and policy that affect Florida’s environment, and alert legislators and the public.
  • Encourage responsible environmental stewardship as part of Florida Democratic Party policy.
