Long Islanders Voted Citizens Campaign for the Environment in Farmingdale as the Best Environmental Organization on Long Island!
1. Citizens Campaign for the Environment
225-A Main St., Farmingdale. 516-390-7150. www.citizenscampaign.org
Citizens Campaign for the Environment 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, with environmentalist Adrienne Esposito talking to policy-makers and managing the not-for-profit, non-partisan advocacy organization, CCE has grown immensely and continues to work to empower the public by providing members with opportunities to participate in the political process through extensive education, research, lobbying and public outreach programs. By working with other organizations in diverse coalitions and through ongoing communication with local, state and federal elected officials and environmental and public health agencies, CCE has been successful in advancing programs that benefit the natural environment and public health.
