Political Committee

Who We Are

The mission of the Sierra Club political program is to preserve the environment through nonpartisan grassroots political action. The principal goals of the program are:

  1. To elect candidates who will support and promote environmental protection;
  2. To raise public awareness about environmental issues and elevate the priority of these issues for decision-makers;
  3. To encourage Club members and other environmentalists to participate in the political process;
  4. To advance the Club's conservation agenda by building relationships with legislators and other elected officials; and
  5. To strengthen the Sierra Club's capacity to elect pro-environment candidates at every level of government.
