CLCV is a great organization with engaged environmentalists helping educate and inform voters about conservation. After being involved in their Asian American outreach research, I really saw their commitment to including all communities in their environmental education.
I am impressed with their Asian-American research into what motivates Asian-Americans to vote and to vote green.
We had a great discussion that Asian-Americans are green, they just call it "green." They conserve. They recycle, etc.
